The Ravens filled their final coaching vacancy Saturday, hiring former Redskins head coach Jim Zorn as their QB coach.

The opening was created when Hue Jackson accepted the Raiders' offensive coordinator job earlier in the week.

Zorn, who spent most of the past season as a lame duck in his second season as Redskins head coach before the team hired Mike Shanahan, returns to a position he held for three years in Detroit (1998-2000) and seven seasons in Seattle (2001-07). He'll work with young Ravens QB Joe Flacco.

"I've got all kinds of methods and ways, but I've got to learn who Joe is and what I can help him with," Zorn told BaltimoreRavens.com. "What I see in watching Joe is that he's got some great, natural talent, and he uses it. I don't know enough about him yet to see where I can help him, but that will come. I haven't even walked in the door yet."
