The writing was on the wall once Juan Castillo was retained.

Early into the offseason, Ravens coach John Harbaugh announced Juan Castillo would be brought back as the team's offensive line coach.

Castillo was termed the run-game coordinator in 2013, with Andy Moeller serving as the offensive line coach. So with Castillo's position title changing, it seemed certain Moeller would find a new employer, considering his title with the Ravens would likely change to a demotion if he stayed.

The good thing from Moeller's perspective is that he was able to land a job laterally in the NFL. According to the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, Moeller will become the offensive line coach for the Cleveland Browns.

Moeller had a decent run with the Ravens, coaching the offensive line from 2011-2013. He was an assistant offensive line coach from 2008-2010.

All things considered, he needed to get out of Baltimore. Though his offensive lines were never as dominant as fans may have hoped for, they were never as bad as Castillo's was this past season. With Harbaugh electing to stick with Castillo, it was a no-win situation for Moeller in Baltimore.

It will be a good fresh start for Moeller as he transitions to a new team this offseason.
