Pleasantries between Harbs & Reid this week. Not surprising, but enjoyable to read:

Perhaps most interesting is this stuff:

Harbaugh isn’t the only Ravens coach that Reid has influenced. Quarterbacks Coach James Urban was on Reid’s staff for seven seasons in Philadelphia, and Reid has a much longer relationship with Offensive Coordinator Marty Mornhinweg. They first met in 1987, when Mornhinweg was a graduate assistant at Texas El-Paso and Reid was hired as UTEP’s offensive line coach. Reid and Mornhinweg often rode to work together in the early morning hours, doing extra film work, bouncing ideas off each other. Mornhinweg is the Ravens’ play-caller and also admires Reid’s aggressiveness.

“Andy’s a unique guy, an ex-offensive lineman who throws the ball over the place,” Mornhinweg said, smiling.

Mornhinweg was Reid’s offensive coordinator in Philadelphia for seven seasons, where they coached Michael Vick, a mobile quarterback whose playing style is often compared to Ravens rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson. Reid is not surprised with the success the Ravens have had with Jackson, who has helped them win three straight games as the starter. Reid sees the Ravens doing some things with Jackson that Mornhinweg did with Vick.

“Lamar, he gives you – he can run like a running back, he’s as fast as a wide receiver, and he can throw like a son of a gun, like a quarterback, so that’s a pretty good combination to have,” Reid said.

“I’m sure Marty has already said this, but Michael, we loved coaching him and could do a ton of things. Again, he was as fast as a wide receiver and could run like a running back. He could throw like a son of a gun, like a great quarterback. That’s a neat combination to be able to coach, and Marty did a heck of a job with it.”

Harbaugh, Mornhinweg and Urban working together with the Ravens is a source of satisfaction for Reid, whose NFL coaching tree keeps growing.
I didn't know Marty and Reid went that far back.
