RAVENS TO ADD WASHINGTON AS ASSISTANT O-LINE COACH
The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to terms with Todd Washington, who will become the team’s assistant offensive line coach, head coach John Harbaugh announced Friday. Washington, 34, will assist offensive line coach Andy Moeller, who was promoted from assistant following the conclusion of the 2010 season.
"We researched Todd’s career and know he’s a demanding coach who builds very good relationships with the players," Harbaugh stated. "Todd will work well with Andy and our players to make the offensive line the best it can possibly be."
Washington arrives in Baltimore after a one-year stint with the United Football League’s Hartford Colonials. Prior to that, he spent three seasons at the University of San Diego, where he served as the offensive coordinator in 2009 and the offensive line coach from 2007-08. Following an eight-year NFL playing career as a guard and center for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1998-2002) and Houston Texans (2003-05), Washington entered the initial ranks of coaching at USD. Selected out of Virginia Tech by Tampa Bay in the 1998 NFL Draft, Washington was a fourth-round pick who played in 96 career NFL games.
