Chiefs hire Jim Zorn as QBs coach

KANSAS CITY, Mo. —The Kansas City Chiefs have hired Jim Zorn as quarterbacks coach.

Zorn, a former head coach of the Washington Redskins, was a quarterback for Seattle and Green Bay during his playing days from 1976-87.

He was 12-20 as Redskins head coach in 2008-09. After Charlie Weis resigned as Kansas City's offensive coordinator last month, Bill Muir was promoted from offensive line coach to offensive coordinator.

Now, the Chiefs said Zorn would become part of the mix. It was unclear Tuesday whether Muir or coach Todd Haley will call plays.

Zorn, 57, was released as Baltimore's quarterbacks coach on Jan. 27.
