A second Baltimore Ravens coach will be leaving from one Harbaugh to another, as running backs coach Matt Weiss is reportedly joining the Michigan Wolverines.

As mentioned, this is the second coach to depart from John Harbaugh staff to join Jim Harbaugh’s; the first being linebackers coach Mike Macdonald.

If Weiss is leaving, he would be the ninth(!) assistant coach to leave the Ravens, joining:

  1. David Culley (Head coach, Houston Texans)
  2. Joe Cullen (Defensive coordinator, Jacksonville Jaguars)
  3. Zach Orr (Outside Linebackers coach, Jaguars)
  4. Andy Bischoff (Tight Ends coach, Texans)
  5. Sterling Lucas (Assistant Defensive Line coach, Jaguars)
  6. Jesse Minter (Defensive coordinator, Vanderbilt)
  7. Brian Duker (Defensive assistant, Detroit Lions)
  8. Mike Macdonald (Defensive coordinator, Michigan)

So many departures have even drawn a response from Ravens CB Marlon Humphrey, who made a light joke of the rumored departure from Weiss.

While it’s meant as a joke, there’s certainly some truth to it.

It’s rather bizarre to see so many assistant/position coaches departing from the team, yet all three coordinators and head coach stay. At minimum, many expected Don Martindale to find a job elsewhere considering his defense has delivered multiple dominant seasons, including two excellent postseason performances in 2020.
