    Ravens hire Steve Spagnuolo as senior defensive assistant

    Ravens hire Steve Spagnuolo as senior defensive assistant
    Former Rams coach added to staff

    The Ravens have hired former St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo as a senior defensive assistant.

    Spagnuolo has been a defensive coordinator with the New York Giants and New Orleans Saints.

    His background with Ravens coach John Harbaugh stems from their days as fellow assistant coaches with the Philadelphia Eagles on Andy Reid's staff. They are close friends.

    Spagnuolo coached linebackers in Philadelphia and Harbaugh was the special teams coach.

    “Steve had a number of opportunities in the league right now, and we’re excited he picked the Ravens,” Harbaugh said. “He comes to a staff that we believe is very strong, and he makes us even better. His wealth of NFL coaching experience speaks for itself, and he’ll help us across the board. We think he can help with every position on the defense, and we’ll take full advantage of his knowledge and excellent teaching abilities. The Ravens got better today with the addition of an outstanding coach and person like Steve.

    Spagnuolo has coached in the NFL for 14 years and was fired by the Saints after one season as defensive coordinator and by the Rams as head coach following the 2011 season.

    He's been a part of eight playoff teams, six division title winners, five conference championship games and won Super Bowl XLII as the defensive coordinator for the Giants.

    During the 2007 NFL season, the Giants ranked in the top 10 in eight statistical categories as they led the NFL with 53 sacks.
