Chiefs name Jim Zorn QBs coach

Posted by Will Brinson

Jim Zorn was named the quarterbacks coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, the team announced on Tuesday.

Zorn was let go by Baltimore a few weeks ago, a decision that prompted some heated comments from Ravens QB Joe Flacco.

"We are excited to finalize our coaching staff today with the addition of Jim Zorn," Todd Haley said in a statement released by the team. "As a former head coach with more than two decades of experience playing and coaching the quarterback position in the NFL, Jim has a tremendous working knowledge of the game, and he will play a big role in the continued development of our football team."

That means on the offensive coaching end of things, there's Haley, newly-elevated offensive coordinator Bill Muir and Zorn. That's an interesting combination, especially because there's been no public discussion about who will call the plays for Kansas City in 2011.

Zorn and Muir would seem -- in this situation -- to be more figurehead than anything else, unlike Charlie Weis in 2010, when the Chiefs offense really exploded.

However, Zorn's gotten good things out of his quarterbacks in Seattle, Washington and Baltimore, especially considering the limited time frame he had to work with those signal callers in the last two stops.

If he and Muir can effectively work to keep Haley's reported ego from taking over, and help Matt Cassel continue to progress, the Chiefs should be in good shape again next year.

Bengals, Chiefs fill offensive coordinator spots

Posted by Andy Benoit

Hours after the Cincinnati Bengals announced that Jay Gruden (brother of Jon) will be their new offensive coordinator, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that the Kansas City Chiefs are tabbing offensive line coach Bill Muir to fill their vacant offensive coordinator position.

Gruden had been the head coach of the UFL Virginia Destroyers.

Prior to coming to Kansas City to instruct the offensive line, Muir served as the Bucs’ offensive coordinator (and line coach) from 2002-2008.  Muir's duties as Kansas City's OC will be minimal, as head coach Todd Haley figures to run the offense. Muir was in a similar situation working under Jon Gruden in Tampa Bay.
