It was a season ago that the Baltimore Ravens dumped nearly their entire coaching staff, ousting Brian Billick and bringing in young gun John Harbaugh.
Harbaugh might have been green when it came to leading an NFL team, but he proved his worth last season in taking the Ravens to an AFC Championship Game appearance.
This season, the Ravens have said goodbye to the final holdover from the Billick era; Rex Ryan is now in charge of his own team in New York.
But take a look at the 2009 Ravens coaching staff, study them a bit, and there is something oddly familiar. We've seen these guys before.
That's because Ozzie Newsome, the Ravens general manager, has a pretty good mold for what he wants his coaching staff to look like.
He finds coaches that fit his mold, just like players, and just drops them in. If that sounds a little too similar to an old-fashioned sci-fi movie, I apologize. But the system works.
So I present to you your 2009 Ravens coaching staff, led by The Mastermind himself, Ozzie Newsome.
