JOE D'ALESSANDRIS (pronounced dell-ah-SAN-dress), a 42-year coaching veteran, enters his fourth season as Baltimore's offensive line coach. "Joe D" has extensive experience guiding and developing linemen, both in the collegiate ranks and pros. In his three full seasons in Baltimore, D'Alessandris has mentored several young offensive linemen, including LT Ronnie Stanley and RT Orlando Brown Jr., both of whom earned their first Pro Bowls in 2019. That season, the Ravens posted the best offensive campaign in team history and their second-straight AFC North title, helping the team to a franchise-best 14-2 record. Led by 2019 NFL MVP QB Lamar Jackson, the Ravens ranked No. 1 in points (33.2) and rushing yards (206.0) per game, while they finished No. 2 in total yards (407.6). The Ravens set a new NFL single-season rushing record (3,296), besting the 1978 Patriots (3,165). Baltimore became the first team ever to average 200 passing and 200 rushing yards per game in a season. The 2019 Ravens also set season team records for TDs (64), points (531), net yards (6,521), rushing yards (3,296), first downs (386) and fewest turnovers (15). Since transitioning to the NFL in 2008, D'Alessandris has mentored players for the Chiefs, Bills, Chargers and Ravens. Prior to his time in the NFL, he tutored players in the NCAA, Canadian Football League and World League.
