Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh announced during a Monday press conference that Jim Caldwell will stay on as the team’s offensive coordinator next season and that the team has hired former Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo.

Caldwell, the former Indianapolis Colts coach, took over the offensive play calling after previous coordinator Cam Cameron was fired in December. He has helped guide the team to Super Bowl XLVII where they will face the San Francisco 49ers. Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco has thrown for 853 yards with eight touchdowns and no interceptions in the Ravens’ playoff run.

Caldwell was the team’s quarterbacks coach before he got the promotion and Castillo was an offensive line coach before the Eagles put him in charge of the Eagles defensive. Currently, Castillo is a consultant for the next two weeks heading into the Super Bowl and will be the Ravens’ run-game coordinator next season.

This is no surprise. Caldwell really improved the offense down the stretch.  The difference was noticeable almost immediately.   Ask the Broncos if you're not sure.  You could ask Belichick, but that arrogant a-hole would never admit it.
