Possible coaching changes

It is uncertain whether or not Ravens Offensive Coordinator Jim Caldwell will receive another head coaching position. He has interviewed with two NFL teams, the Detroit Lions and the Washington Redskins and his alma mater, Penn State, is looking for a new coach.

It is for sure that Head Coach Harbaugh is looking for a possible replacement.

Jim Caldwell came to Baltimore after being fired at the end of the 2011 NFL season from the Indianapolis Colts. Thirteen days after his dismissal from the Colts, Caldwell was named quarterbacks coach by the Baltimore Ravens. After the firing of Cam Cameron on December 10, 2012, Caldwell was named the offensive coordinator. On January 22, 2013 the day after the defeat of the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game, head coach John Harbaugh announced that Caldwell become the team’s permanent offensive coordinator. During the 2012 season, Caldwell helped lead the Baltimore offense to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII on February 3rd, 2013.

Unfortunately, the 2013 season was a different year. The Ravens had no running game, partially due to their injured top-performing running back, the quarterback had multiple sacks and interceptions, their top tight end was out with a serious injury and the Ravens did not manage to replace their power wide receiver from the Super Bowl XLVII era.

You can’t blame a coach for this. One bad season does not make a bad coach just like one good season does not make a good football player. With all the new additions and injuries, the team did not “gel” in time to make it to the play-offs. They fought like warriors with that they had to work with.
