Bobby Engram was officially named the Ravens' wide receivers coach on Tuesday.

The Ravens' 2014 coaching staff is officially set.

On Tuesday, the organization announced that Bobby Engram will be the team's receivers coach. Engram enjoyed a long NFL career, spending time with the Seahawks, Bears and Chiefs. He then became an offensive assistant with the 49ers (2011) before moving on to the University of Pittsburgh to coach receivers for the past two seasons.

"When you combine Bobby's NFL pedigree as a player and his coaching experience, you see why we're excited to add him to our staff," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said in a statement. "He comes highly recommended, he did an outstanding job at San Francisco and Pitt, and he's an impressive person. He'll help our receivers and our offense become better."

In his NFL career, Engram recorded 7,751 yards and 35 touchdowns, and was a part of the Seahawks team that lost to the Steelers in Super Bowl XL.

Engram played college football at Penn State from 1992-1995. In 1994, Engram recorded 1,024 yards and won the Biletnikoff Award, which goes to the nation's best college receiver.

With Pitt this past season, Engram guided Tyler Boyd to school records for receptions (85) and receiving yards (1,174) by a freshman.

"What an opportunity to join a team that has won, knows how to win and does all it can to make sure they continue to win," Engram said. "I'm ready to be part of that and ready to work."
