Chris Hewitt enters his second season as the Ravens' secondary coach after being promoted prior to the 2017 campaign. He previously served as the team's defensive backs coach from 2015-16 and the assistant secondary coach in 2014. Entering his seventh-overall season in Baltimore, Hewitt also spent two years (2012-13) helping guide a Ravens' special teams unit led by special teams coordinator/associate head coach Jerry Rosburg, for whom Hewitt played at the University of Cincinnati while Rosburg was an assistant. In 2017, Baltimore's defense racked up an NFL-best 22 INTs. The Ravens also forced an NFL-high 34 turnovers and finished with the league's No. 1 turnover differential (+17). Baltimore's pass defense finished 10th (213.8 ypg), while its defensive passer rating (72.4) was the NFL's second-best mark. Over the past two seasons (2016-17), the Ravens have recorded more takeaways (62) and INTs (40) than any other NFL team.
