The Baltimore Ravens have released quarterback coach Jim Zorn, the team announced Thursday.

Zorn's role on the team was not a fit for either side, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Zorn, who was the head coach of the Washington Redskins in 2008 and 2009, is expected to draw interest from other teams.

"We were able to get Jim here for a year after his head coaching job with the Redskins," head coach John Harbaugh said. "He was able to help us get back to the playoffs, and we thank him for his contributions."

Offensive coordinator Cam Cameron will work directly with the team's quarterback, Harbaugh said.

"We've talked about this since the end of the season, and we believe this will help improve our offense," Harbaugh said. "Cam is noted for his development of quarterbacks, and that includes Joe Flacco and Pro Bowl players like Drew Brees and Philip Rivers.

Offensive assistant Craig Ver Steeg will assist with Baltimore's quarterbacks.

Also on Thursday, the Ravens announced that Teryl Austin, former defensive coordinator at Florida, will take over as Baltimore's secondary coach.
