  • Zorn hasn’t been tied to any particular team in the report, though it’s fair to speculate Seattle could be a top contender. Zorn, who lives in Washington, was the starting quarterback for the Seahawks’ first eight seasons and was inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor in 1991. He returned to Seattle as quarterbacks coach from 2001-07, and was the head coach for Washington in the NFL for the 2008 and 2009 seasons.

    Seattle’s XFL team will play at CenturyLink Field, the home stadium for the the NFL’s Seahawks.

  • Good for Jim, the whole Redskins fiasco left a blemish on his career that he could not get past. Be nice to see him do something he loves and given a chance to succeed.

  • It would be a smart move for the XFL to make him the coach for the Seattle team.
    It would help drum up interest in their product here.

  • Zorn was named AFC Offensive Rookie of the Year by the National Football League Players Association following the team's inaugural 1976 season.[4] He was also the Seahawks' team MVP, throwing for 12 touchdowns and rushing for four touchdowns. His three consecutive 3,000-yard seasons were tops in team history, since broken by Matt Hasselbeck in 2005, and he was the first Seattle quarterback to record back-to-back 300-plus yard games—a feat he accomplished twice.[5]

    He was succeeded by Dave Krieg midway through the 1983 season, the year the Seahawks first made the NFL playoffs. Zorn stayed with the team as a second-string quarterback until the end of the 1984 season.

    Zorn was well known as one of the more prolific scrambling quarterbacks of his day, and he was named the 8th best mobile quarterback by NFL.com in 2008[6]

  • Perhaps Flutie would come on-board as QB coach?
