The Baltimore Ravens have appointed Chris Hewitt to be their assistant secondary coach and have hired Billy DeLorbe as their cross-training specialist, head coach John Harbaugh announced Wednesday.

A three-year NFL coaching veteran, Hewitt was originally hired as the Ravens’ assistant special teams coach in 2012. Prior to his Baltimore arrival, Hewitt served in various coaching capacities for Rutgers University, most recently as running backs coach (2010-11). Hewitt also spent time as the Scarlet Knights’ cornerbacks coach (2008-09), director of speed and skill development (2005-07) and as a graduate assistant (2004). He began his coaching career as a strength and conditioning assistant for Notre Dame (2003).

In addition to his 11 years of coaching, Hewitt brings to the Ravens’ defensive staff three years of NFL playing experience as a defensive back with the New Orleans Saints (1997-99). Hewitt signed with the Saints as a rookie free agent in 1997 and played in 39 games (four starts) both at defensive back and on special teams. He totaled 29 tackles (22 solo) from scrimmage, three sacks, one pass defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. Prior to signing with New Orleans, Hewitt was a four-year letterman at Cincinnati and a two-time All-Conference USA selection (1995-96) as a defensive back.

DeLorbe, who enters his first season in the NFL, spent the past 10 years (2004-13) as a master personal trainer at the Maryland Athletic Club. In that role, he led structured group training exercises while also providing private, high-intensity workout sessions for several athletes. DeLorbe brings an added dimension to the Ravens’ fitness staff, which consists of head strength and conditioning coach Bob Rogucki and assistant strength and conditioning coach Juney Barnett. As cross-training specialist, DeLorbe will focus on boosting players’ flexibility and mobility with an emphasis on core strengthening and improved balance.

After earning his bachelor’s degree in mathematics from St. Mary’s College of Maryland in 2002, DeLorbe began his fitness career as a trainer while earning his master’s degree in applied industrial mathematics from Towson University. DeLorbe was born in San Francisco and currently lives in Lutherville with his wife, Megan, and their son, Will.
