Ravens make more coaching changes


The Baltimore Ravens are not done making changes to their coaching staff. The team recently announced several coaching changes after the arrival of Gary Kubiak as the team’s new offensive coordinator.

The Ravens have hired Brian Pariani as tight ends coach and appointed Steve Spagnuolo as secondary coach. Spagnuolo has also been named the team’s assistant head coach.

 “How fortunate are we to have a former NFL head coach, former defensive coordinator and secondary coach become the Ravens’ coach for our defensive backs?” Harbaugh said. “Steve is one of the outstanding teachers in the NFL, and he already worked with our defensive staff and players last season as a senior assistant. Our players respect him, and a number of our veteran defensive backs recently said to me that they wanted Steve to coach them.”

Traditionally, tight ends have seen a huge role in a Kubiak-led offense.

“Brian has earned a reputation as one of the NFL’s top tight ends coaches, and we’re excited that he was available and willing to join us,” Harbaugh stated. “Another factor that immediately makes him valuable to us is his familiarity with the offense we want to run. We are making changes on offense, and Brian will be able to help teach and implement them.”

The Ravens have also named Special Teams Coordinator Jerry Rosburg as associate head coach.
