Ravens Fire Offensive Coordinator Cameron, Promote Jim Caldwell

Dec. 10 (Bloomberg) -- The Baltimore Ravens fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and replaced him with quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell, a day after the team scored seven second-half points in a 31-28 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins.

Cameron, 51, was in his fifth season with Baltimore, which ranks fourth in the 16-team American Football Conference with 25.5 points a game and has lost consecutive regular-season contests for the first time since 2009.

“Our responsibility as a coaching staff is to maximize the opportunities for our team to win, and we can still reach all of our goals for this season,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said in a statement. “We have a motto we follow on this team: W.I.N. -- What’s Important Now -- and what’s important now is to find ways to get better, win the AFC North and advance to the playoffs.”

The Ravens held a 21-14 halftime lead against the Redskins yesterday, but gained just 149 yards in the second half, with turnovers on their first two possessions.

Caldwell, 57, joined the Ravens after being fired as coach of the Indianapolis Colts following a 2-14 season. Caldwell was quarterbacks coach of the Colts from 2002 to 2007, helping Peyton Manning win two league Most Valuable Player awards.

The Ravens (9-4) are first in the AFC North division. The team has made the playoffs five of the past six seasons without reaching the Super Bowl.
