I am still combing through the transcripts from Romeo Crennel’s press conference announcing the hire of Brian Daboll (we do the dirty work so you don’t have to_ and I found an interesting nugget regarding QB coach Jim Zorn.
Despite reports that Zorn is expected to resign now that he hasn’t been hired as the team’s offensive coordinator, Crennel says he wants Zorn to stay.
“I do and I hope that Jim stays, Crennel said. “I know that anytime you interview for the coordinator job you have hopes of getting it and it didn’t work out for him here at this time but I told Jim that I wanted him to stay and hoped that he would stay and I expect him to stay.”
I would be fine with Zorn sticking around as the QB coach. The Chiefs need some continuity and losing Zorn after he only had one season (with no offseason) to work with Matt Cassel and Ricky Stanzi, likely wouldn’t do the QB’s any favors.
“I don’t know what else might happen for him but if nothing happens for him then I expect him to be here and Jim is a good coach, I think he’ll do a good job with the quarterbacks so we’re looking forward to him being here and going forward,” Crennel added.
What do you think Addicts? Do you want to see Zorn back in KC?
