The Gatoraide bath enjoyed by Zorn on a hot night in Landover lasted as long as his tenue with the Baltimore Ravens. Zorn was let go this month, following a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the playoffs. Whether it was his mentoring style or Flacco’s uncanny ability to flop when it counts and at the worst moments, someone had to go. And it wasn’t Flacco.
Despite beliefs that Zorn was wearing out his welcome in “Charm City”, head coach John Harbaugh came to the aide of his former aide.
“Jim’s departure from the Ravens will remain as private as these matters can be, but we feel it’s necessary to at least point out that this report is inaccurate. It is not true in any way, shape or form.”
Whatever the case may be, they were not happy and did their best to sweet this under the rug. One has to feel bad for one of the nicest guys you could work with in the NFL. However, Zorn failed to reach success in his last two stops. Nice guys finish last, and in the NFL it can get your fired.
