ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is angry over the team's decision to fire quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn.

Zorn was dismissed on Thursday after one season with Baltimore. Flacco says he's "not happy" and considers the move to be a personal attack on his own performance this season.

Speaking Saturday before jumping into the icy Chesapeake Bay for the annual Polar Bear Plunge, Flacco said, "Usually when you fire a position coach, it's because you're not really happy with how that position did."

Upon firing Zorn, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he wanted to expand the role of offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. Flacco understands this, but says he would have preferred that Zorn had been a part of it.

Flacco says, "I don't think it was a good decision. I'm disappointed, and they know I'm disappointed."
