While gearing up to introduce new free agent acquisitions Earl Thomas and Mark Ingram, the Ravens made an important announcement before the introductions.

Special Teams Coordinator Jerry Rosburg announced his retirement Friday after 11 seasons in Baltimore.

The Ravens special teams has been a staple of their winning ways since 2008. Members such as kicker Justin Tucker, punter Sam Koch, and Morgan Cox have consistently given the Ravens opportunities to win.

Rosburg mentioned a number of other special team players he had the honor to coach, including Jacoby Jones and Albert McClellan.

Rosburg coached football for 40 years, coaching at the high school and collegiate levels from 1979-2000.

Before coming to Baltimore, Rosburg acted as the Special Teams coordinator for both the Cleveland Browns from 2001-2006 and Atlanta Falcons in 2007.

Rosburg has been the ST coordinator ever since head coach John Harbaugh came in 2008. Harbaugh spoke of Rosburg’s impact for the past 11 seasons.

Chris Horton will assume the role of ST coordinator. Before flipping over to coaching, Horton played in the NFL for two seasons with the Washington Redskins.
