Jim Zorn, who popped into the news lately when it was revealed that Dan Snyder fired Vinny Cerrato because Cerrato let him hire Zorn to be the Redskins' head coach, is looking for work.
He had been the quarterbacks coach of the Chiefs for the last two seasons but when Andy Reid was hired, Zorn was let go. And now he's looking for another head coaching job north of the border.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Zorn has interviewed for the head coaching job of the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL. That was the job vacated when Marc Trestman took the job as the head coach of the Chicago Bears.
Zorn posted a record of 12-20 as the Redskins' head coach from 2008-2009. That is the only coaching experience he has above the position coach level. The Redskins originally hired him to be their offensive coordinator but they decided to make him the head coach later in the process.
The Chiefs ranked 25th and 32nd in passing offense in Zorn's two years as their quarterbacks coach. It is difficult to pin all of the blame for that on Zorn. The quarterbacks he has had to work with were Matt Cassel, Tyler Palko, Kyle Orton, and Brady Quinn.
