 OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -The Baltimore Ravens hired Jerry Rosburg as special teams coach Wednesday, a move that provides veteran leadership on a unit that is particularly meaningful to new head coach John Harbaugh.
Rosburg coached the Atlanta Falcons' special teams this season after spending the previous six years in the same capacity with the Cleveland Browns. In 2006, the Browns ranked among the top 15 in punt return average, kickoff return average and net punting average. One year earlier, Cleveland led the NFL in special teams scoring.
Rosburg also was a college coach for 20 years, including the 1999-2000 seasons as Notre Dame's cornerbacks and special teams coach.
He replaces Frank Gansz Jr., who was fired on Dec. 31 when the Ravens dismissed head coach Brian Billick and his entire staff. Rosburg joins offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and assistant head coach/defensive coordinator Rex Ryan, hired on Monday.
Harbaugh is one coach who certainly can appreciate the importance of special teams play; he was in charge of the Philadelphia Eagles' special teams from 1998-2006.
