Eric DeCosta Staying In Baltimore

Posted Dec 31, 2012

The Ravens have been contacted by teams requesting to interview Assistant GM Eric DeCosta.


It’s Black Monday around the NFL.

Seven head coaches and five general managers have already lost their jobs the day after the end of the regular season.

With that come job openings. And once again Ravens Assistant General Manager Eric DeCosta is a hot name around the league.

The Ravens released a statement Monday afternoon saying “a number of NFL teams” have contacted the Ravens seeking permission to interview DeCosta.

DeCosta stopped the process before it got rolling, making it clear that he’s not going anywhere.

"I love being a part of the Ravens and plan to stay here and help them win championships,” DeCosta said. “I have no intentions of leaving this team.”

Baltimore promoted DeCosta on May 17, moving him from Director of Player Personnel to Assistant General Manager. The move essentially affirmed that DeCosta is Baltimore’s general manager in waiting for whenever Ozzie Newsome decides to step down.

“As Eric continues to grow in the personnel department, he is becoming a vital part of the decision-making process,” Newsome said at the time.

DeCosta reportedly pulled his name out of the running for the Seattle Seahawks’ general manager search in 2009 and decided to stay in Baltimore last offseason when three teams (Colts, Rams and Bears) reportedly requested permission to speak to him.

As non-playoff teams look to reshuffle their coaching staff and front offices, more moves are expected.

Head Coach John Harbaugh shared his thoughts on the difficulty of Black Monday. Among those fired was one of his mentors, Andy Reid, after 14 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. Friend Pat Shurmur was also fired by the Browns.

“A lot of great people,” Harbaugh said.

“The toughest thing is on the families. As coaches, we all understand the nature of the business, players too understand the nature of it. That’s part of the challenge. But it’s hard on families. It’s hard on kids who have to change schools, pick up and move and start in other cities. That’s who you feel for the most and that’s kind of where your prayers go out to.”
