Ravens Coaches Migrate to Cleveland

Andy Moeller

Mike Pettine’s coaching staff with the Cleveland Browns will include four other coaches with Ravens ties.

The Browns hired Pettine, who was on Baltimore’s staff from 2002-08, to be their head coach Jan. 23 and announced his coaching staff Thursday.

That staff includes Wilbert Montgomery as running backs coach, Andy Moeller as the offensive line coach, Anthony Weaver as defensive line coach and Paul Ricci as strength and conditioning coach.

Montgomery was fired by the Ravens in January after five seasons as their running backs coach.

Moeller was Baltimore’s assistant offensive line coach from 2008-10 and was the offensive line coach from 2011 through this past season.

He wasn’t fired, but Ravens coach John Harbaugh said during January that Juan Castillo had served as Baltimore’s offensive line coach last season, not Moeller.

Harbaugh also said that Castillo would take over the title of offensive line coach going into next season, which meant that Moeller would have been nothing more than an assistant offensive line coach if he had stayed with the Ravens.

  1. Tucker: M&T Sec 527 on said:

    Will be interesting to track the progress of the Cleveland running game compared to ours. Pending personnel additions, it could tell us how disruptive Castillo’s “coordination” of the running game really was in 2013. If the Ravens’ 2012 run game coaches Montgomery and Drinky get results on the ground for the Browns, while we have another sub par season rushing (especially if we don’t stand [relatively] pat in personel), there won’t be many places left towards which to point fingers
