The Baltimore Ravens' hiring of former Redskins coach Jim Zorn as its new quarterbacks coach would be a non-story if the last two years never existed.
Zorn was a well-established quarterbacks coach with the Seattle Seahawks and was the front-runner for the Redskins' offensive coordinator position, until owner (and imbecile) Daniel Snyder decided to give him the keys to the car.
What happened for the next two years was nothing short of painful for Redskins fans, as the team compiled a 12-20 record before severing ties with Zorn, ending what seemed more like an abusive relationship than a head coaching tenure.
Zorn led Washington to a 4-12 record, the Redskins' worst mark since 1993, including six losses to NFC East opponents. Widely regarded as in over his head, Zorn was expectedly let go on January 4th, but is still collecting a hefty $2.4 million paycheck from Snyder's deep pockets.
It didn't take Zorn long to find a new job that clearly suits his abilities better, as he will take over for former quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson, who took the offensive coordinator job in Oakland.
As a quarterbacks coach, Zorn did a stand-up job working intimately with Matt Hasselbeck, who made three Pro Bowl appearances during Zorn's tenure in Seattle.
Said Harbaugh: "I've gotten to know Jim the last couple of years. He's a good, kind and decent man. He's an exciting addition to our staff."
Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco joined in on the excitement, adding, "I am excited to hear about the addition of Coach Zorn to our staff. The amount of success that coach Zorn has achieved on the field both as a player and coach is going to be a huge asset to me personally, and to us as an organization."
