Ravens Make Two Coaching Moves

From the team website:

The Ravens coaching staff is now complete.

Former Rutgers running backs coach Chris Hewitt has joined the Ravens staff as the assistant special teams coach, taking the spot vacated by Marwan Maalouf, who went with Chuck Pagano to Indianapolis as the Colts special teams coordinator.

Matt Weiss, who has served as Head Coach John Harbaugh’s assistant the past three seasons, has been promoted to defensive assistant.  He is replacing Roy Anderson who also went to Indianapolis to be the safeties coach.

“It’s just a great opportunity to learn more and to continue to develop as a coach,” Weiss said.  “When I look back as a coach, I think working as Coach Harbaugh’s assistant will be three of the most valuable years I ever spent in terms of getting to study him up close and learn everything from him about being a head coach.”

Weiss joined the Ravens staff after spending four seasons at Stanford University under Jim Harbaugh as a defensive/ special teams assistant and graduate assistant.  He was a punter at Vanderbilt (2001-04) for four seasons.

“Matt is an integral part of our coaching staff and our team,” Harbaugh said. “His responsibilities keep growing and his input keeps increasing.”

Hewitt comes to Baltimore after spending the last eight seasons with Rutgers, where he coached running backs, cornerbacks and was the team’s Director of Speed and Skill Development. This is his first full-time coaching job in the NFL.

“I’m really excited about being in the NFL,” Hewitt said. “It’s a great opportunity to be working with coach Harbaugh. He is someone I’ve known for a long time.”
