The ravens have just hired Steve Spagnoulo as a senior defensive assistant. Spags, as he is known by most, is a very talented defensive mind. One of the best in the game.
That means in this offseason the Ravens have now hired both Spags and offensive coach and Run Game Coordinator Juan Castillo. Both worked with John Harbaugh in Philadelphia. Both are among the best coaches I. The league on a smaller scale, but failed when moved to more broad positions. Juan Castillo is arguably the games best offensive line coach, Spags is arguably the best on the defensive line.
These are two extremely interesting hires that reflect the further attempts to advance the level of play on both sides of the line. Spags should be a huge hire for guys like Brandon Williams, Courtney Upshaw and Terrence Cody. Having more talent in your coaching staff is just as important as adding talent to the players on the field.
