Well he still has no head coaching experience, but he must be one hell of a secondary coach and be very highly thought of because their he was just named head coach of the Baltimore Ravens. Harbaugh will replace Brian Billick and will head the team Rick Neuheisel was just the offensive coordinator with.The Ravens are proud to announce that John Harbaugh was named to become the third head coach in franchise history.
Harbaugh, the former secondary coach for the Philadelphia Eagles, joined the Ravens Friday night after a long day of meetings.
After a nine-year successful stint as the Eagles special teams coordinator, Harbaugh took over a new role as the club's secondary coach in 2007.
Known for his energy and charisma, the 45-year-old Harbaugh brings a youthful exuberance to the position.
Just a mere month ago, Harbaugh was a candidate for the UCLA head coaching job, but his candidacy was laughed at by the majority of fans, alumni and media. I think seeing things like this should also show how well Guerrero handled the coaching search. He interviewed candidates despite being laughed at and it looks like even the lesser known candidates he interviewed are innovative young coaches who have a bright future ahead of them. Guerrero made a very good hire in Neuheisel, but he brought in all different types of coaches to give him a vast array of candidates to choose from and good perspective from which to make the choice. Seeing Neuseisel chosen from such a qualified group of candidates should further our confidence in the hire.
