Report: Ravens staff expected to coach in Pro Bowl

The Baltimore Ravens' coaching staff is expected to coach in the Pro Bowl, according to a report from The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

With the Broncos firing "mutually parting ways" with John Fox, the NFL has asked the Ravens' staff to fill in. The reason is the that if the best Divisional Round loser is unable to serve as a Pro Bowl coaching staff, the job trickles down to the next team that lost from that round.

It's nothing set in stone as a final decision will be made on Tuesday.

Assuming John Harbaugh and the coaching staff will lead one squad, and they could have at least three familiar faces to work with. Outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil, right guard Marshal Yanda and inside linebacker C.J. Mosley are all first-team Pro Bowl players. Ravens alternates include outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, running back Justin Forsett, punter Sam Koch, kick returner Jacoby Jones and fullback Kyle Juszczyk.

This year's Pro Bowl game won't be a great vacation destination as its slated to take place in Glendale, Ariz. the week before the Super Bowl. In most years, it's held in Hawaii.

Harbaugh and company won't be coaching an AFC team as the league has gone "unconferenced," and is now in a fantasy draft format with captains picking teams.

Of course, the Ravens could turn it down, but it would mean turning down some extra money from the league to do it.
