    He called plays this past year for Indy, IIRC (albeit to no avail, but the experience is there).

    OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

    JIM CALDWELL NAMED RAVENS QUARTERBACKS COACH

    The Baltimore Ravens have hired Jim Caldwell as their quarterbacks coach, head coach John Harbaugh announced Monday afternoon.

    Caldwell, 57, is an 11-year NFL coaching veteran who spent the past 10 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. From 2009-11, he served as the franchise’s head coach, guiding the Colts to a 26-22 record in three seasons. Under his leadership, Indianapolis won two AFC South titles (2009-10) and earned an appearance in Super Bowl XLIV. In leading the Colts to the Super Bowl that season, Caldwell became just the fifth rookie coach in NFL history to reach the championship game.

    “After spending considerable time with Jim over the last week, we think he will be an excellent fit with our team, coaching the quarterbacks and helping with our offense,” Harbaugh stated. “We believe he enhances our staff. Jim has a tremendous history coaching at the college and pro level, especially working with quarterbacks and providing help with offenses. The timing is right to add a quarterbacks coach after Cam [Cameron] and Joe [Flacco] worked so closely and well together this year. It’s the right step for us now.”

    Prior to his time as the Colts’ head coach, Caldwell helped guide quarterback Peyton Manning to three of his four NFL MVP awards, serving as quarterbacks coach from 2002-08. During that seven-season span, Manning produced NFL highs in completions (2,482), completion percentage (66.5), passing yards (29,210), passing touchdowns (222) and passer rating (100.5).

    During Indy’s 12-4 campaign in 2004, Manning threw for a career-high 49 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions, setting a single-season personal-best 121.1 QB rating (also the second-best mark in NFL history – Aaron Rodgers, 122.5, 2011).

    “I am really excited to work with Coach Harbaugh, Cam and the rest of the coaching staff,” Caldwell said. “It’s a great fit for me, and I’m happy they saw it that way. I can’t wait to get started with the Ravens, an organization that from top to bottom is one of the NFL’s best. I’m looking forward to coming to Baltimore.”

    Caldwell’s initial head coaching job came at Wake Forest (1993-2000), where he was the first African-American head coach in ACC history. He also has NFL coaching experience with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2001, quarterbacks) and collegiate experience with Penn State, Louisville, Colorado, Northwestern, Southern Illinois and Iowa.

    A graduate (English literature) of the University of Iowa, Caldwell was a four-year starter as a defensive back from 1973-76. He served as a graduate assistant on the Hawkeyes’ staff in 1977. Born Jan. 16, 1955 in Beloit, Wis., he and his wife, Cheryl, have four children: Jimmy, Jermaine, Jared and Natalie.

    They sure kept that quiet.

    Ha, so much for all those posters who claimed that the Ravens weren't interviewing anyone this past week because it wasn't tweeted or discussed.

    Caldwell has experience working with receivers as well. Hopefully that will trickle over...maybe he should just be the QB's and WR's coach...to hell with Hostler.

    I'm excited about this. I think it's a good step for the organization.

    Very good pickup. This will only help Joe and the offense.

    Can they ask Cameron to manage the run game and let Caldwell coach the passing game? Just kidding. Maybe.

    We had that system under Marchibroda.

    It invariably ended up with a screen pass to Rosie Potts.

    We don't have Rosie Potts anymore.

    Well, didn't the Ravens have a prolific offense back then?

    DING DING DING! We have a winner!

    If you look at the Colts draft classes from a last few years, they are stinkers.

    Two GMs have lost their jobs for not having a backup plan to their QB going down.

    I'm thinking Caldwell will be more politically adept than Zorn as an advocate for Joe. He was a high functioning HC, unlike Zorn who never really had a chance w/ the 'Skins circus.

    I hope Caldwell learned a lesson this year when it come to Plan B at QB. Reflecting recently after Billy Goat Grundiff-gate, on how 2 decades of Matt Stover's reliability had spoiled Ravens Nation, it occurred to me that Joe's 1st 4 years have spoiled us as to his durability. The boards will light up all night over "elite vs. non-elite," but there is no arguing that Joe has gone 16 starts plus playoffs 4 years running. I was surprised to never see or even hear rumours [even as disinformation] of a Tyrod package. Hell, use it for one series as a Tebow-esque ground game when in a jam at some point; then opponents' Ds have to spend some time/mind on it.

    Joe is not Goober, but that doesn't mean we can [as the Colts did] convince ourselves he won't get sidelined for real at some point, if only for a few games.

    Re: Schefter: Caldwell to be Ravens QB coach

    So the Ravens lose their successful defensive coordinator to the Colts and in return, the Ravens get Colts' failed head coach. Brilliant. The only possible conclusion is that the Ravens have decided to give up after almost getting into the Super Bowl. If they end up at the bottom, as they likely will, they will have no one to blame but themselves. This is profoundly stupid.[/QUOTE]

    Any coach can be successful being the ravens DC!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mattison even had some good game planss. How many of our defensive coaches was promoted on other teams? Its a reason why other teams want our coaches. He also took the Colts to the SB
    WE DON'T NEED YOUR RESPECT BUT WE WILL BEAT UP ON YOU AND TAKE YOUR SOUL!!!!!!!
