Reports: Ravens To Hire WRs Coach Bobby Engram

Posted Feb 6, 2014

Bobby Engram is a former NFL receiver who has coached in the pros and college.


The Ravens are reportedly set to complete their offensive coaching staff by hiring Bobby Engram as their wide receivers coach, according to coachingsearch.com.

Engram would replace Jim Hostler, who after six years in Baltimore left to join the Buffalo Bills once he was not hired as the Ravens’ offensive coordinator.

Engram was an NFL receiver for 14 seasons, splitting his career between the Chicago Bears, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs.

He finished his pro career with 650 receptions for 7,751 yards and 35 touchdowns, including six catches for 70 yards in Super Bowl XL for the Seahawks in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Before that, Engram was arguably the greatest receiver in Penn State history. He won the first-ever Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver, and is still the Nittany Lions’ all-time leader in yards (3,026) and touchdowns (31).

After retiring in 2009, Engram quickly launched himself into coaching.

He was an offensive assistant coach for the San Francisco 49ers in 2011, then the wide receivers coach at the University of Pittsburgh in 2012 and 2013.

Head Coach John Harbaugh dipped into the college ranks to hire Running Backs Coach Thomas Hammock from Wisconsin. Now he has reportedly done it again to grab Engram.

Engram would be in charge of developing wide receivers Torrey Smith, Marlon Brown and more. He could also potentially work with a high draft pick, as the Ravens have said they want to add a reliable pass catcher to their corps this offseason.
