Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh added two more coaches to his staff today, including quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson, who has been an offensive coordinator for both the Falcons (2007) and the Redskins (2003).
Harbaugh also hired Andy Moeller, the highly-respected offensive line coach (2002-07) at the University of Michigan. Moeller will serve as the Ravens' assistant offensive line coach. John Matsko joined Baltimore last week as the offensive line coach.
"One of the main attributes we're looking for in assembling this staff is great communication. Hue Jackson has that. He's known for getting the players' attention and taking them to a higher level of play," said head coach John Harbaugh. "His experience at coordinating, both in the NFL and in college, adds some real strength to our offensive group. When [Ravens offensive coordinator] Cam [Cameron] and I first talked about putting this offensive staff together, we targeted Hue, and we're excited he decided to join us."
"I'm very excited. The opportunity to work with John Harbaugh and Cam Cameron was an ideal situation for me," said Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson. "Coach Harbaugh's attention to detail, his fiery style and his leadership make him someone you love to follow into battle. Coach Cameron has put together many great offenses, and working with him give me more of an opportunity to grow as a football coach."
Harbaugh expressed his admiration for Moeller: "He's another coach's son. You know I have to like those guys. He was a few years behind me in high school, but I've known him and his family since then. His production with the offensive line at Michigan speaks for itself, both in the way that group consistently played at a high level and in the number of NFL players graduating from his teaching. His players were always tough, physical and smart – in the Michigan tradition."
"Look at all the Michigan linemen Andy coached who are currently in the NFL. And, he has a top 10 pick (T Jake Long) in this year's draft," said Ravens director of college scouting Eric DeCosta. "His approach, with his attention to detail, will help elevate our linemen. I think they'll respond to him."
