Jim Zorn is a former NFL player and NFL head coach who was the first ever starting quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks in their expansion season of 1976. Zorn would remain the starter for the next 7 seasons and finished his Seahawks career in 1984. After a few more seasons, he was finished with football after the 1987 season and then turned his attention to coaching.
In 2001, Zorn returned to the team he played with for so many years and was the quarterback coach for the Seahawks. In 2005, his team won the NFC championship and went on to Super Bowl XL against the Steelers. Zorn had a stint as an NFL head coach in 2008 and 2009 with Washington.
Today on the podcast, we talk to Jim Zorn about his NFL playing career, living his faith out each day, the comparisons of coaching and playing as a Christian and his desire to finish well as he approaches 70 years old in 2023.
