The Baltimore Ravens are really going all out in hiring new assistant coaches for the organization. A team that was held out of the playoffs for the first time in John Harbaugh’s tenure is really going full force in hiring a new, All-Star coaching staff. The last, being wide receiver’s coach Bobby Engram. It started with the offensive coordinator decision that became former Houston Texans‘ head coach Gary Kubiak. Harbaugh went with the same strategy than he did with his former offensive coordinator (Jim Caldwell) after losing his job in Indianapolis.
The Ravens also hired Thomas Hammock as the club’s running backs coach. Hammock came from the University of Wisconsin where he coached Heisman Trophy finalist and Doak Walker and current Denver Broncos running back Monte Ball, who was a star at Wisconsin.
Now Engram will add to the staff. Engram played 14 seasons in the National Football League with the Seahawks, Bears and Chiefs. Engram recorded 650 receptions, for 7,751 yards and 35 touchdowns. The 41-year-old Engram spent the last two seasons with the Pittsburgh Panthers as the wide receivers coach.
Engram has a strong knowledge of the west-coast offense that Kubiac will be installing in Baltimore. Engram played in the west-coast with the Seahawks under head coach Mike Holmgren and quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.
How will the addition fare for the Ravens?
