Default Beware of the ZORN

On NFL Network last night I'm reading the crawl on coaching news and it says,

"Jim Zorn expected to be named QB coach of Kansas City pending an offer from the Steelers to be their offensive coordinator."

HUH?

Why would the Steelers be interested in a guy one team values as a QB coach? Not to mention the only year Zorn called plays was when he was a head coach and they ranked like 30th.

I believe he would make a very good QB coach and if the Steelers weren't dragging their feet on hiring a new OC they could be in the running for him as such.

Nobody know's what the hell the Steelers are doing. I'm beginning to wonder if they even know what the hell there doing. We won't hear much of anything until the official announcement is made, and it'll likely be Finchtner.

According to this link Zorn will be staying as QB coach in Kansas City unless the Steelers contact him to interview for the OC position


NFL.com reported Saturday that Zorn will stay in Kansas City unless the Steelers approach him for their offensive coordinator job. This decision should serve the Chiefs well. Zorn had a good relationship with the quarterbacks last year and keeping him will ensure continuity.

There is no indication the Steelers actually have contacted Zorn - this may just be Zorn's agent trying to get Zorn a raise by putting out this rumor

What the hell is going on?
Can't make a decision.......pickings are very slim........looks like it's going to be an in-house hire for sure (by default).
Looks like a lateral move at best.......how much offensive improvement can be expected?

Tomlin wanted to keep Arians and saw no reason to change

So he conducts outside interviews with a fired HC who has never been an OC and another fired HC who is uniformly regarded as being a nightmare to work with

After running out the clock with that process, Tomlin apparently will then stay in-house with the successor to Arians

If the defense slips and the offense does not improve in 2012 Tomlin will be facing bigger problems than looking for an OC

At this point I wonder if Tomlin is conducting his own interviews or if it is actually ownership. Somehow I don't think the Rooneys are too enamored with our current offensive coaches as far as OC goes.
My guess is an announcement will be made next week. It's anybody's guess at this point who the offer the job to.
If they give it to Zorn, I'll be hopeful, but worried.

Agreed.

I think if they were going to hire in house they would have done so already. I still think that they may be waiting to interview someone from one of the superbowl participants.
