Cameron out as Ravens' OC, Caldwell promoted to post
Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - The Baltimore Ravens have reportedly fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.
According to the Baltimore Sun, quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell will step into the post for the remainder of the season.
The decision comes one day after the Ravens lost their second straight game. Baltimore dropped a 23-20 decision to Pittsburgh last week and came up short on Sunday in a 31-28 overtime setback at Washington.
Cameron was in his fifth season as the club's offensive coordinator. He joined the Ravens in January 2008 after a dismal one-year stint as the head coach at Miami. The Dolphins were 1-15 in his lone season of 2007, but Cameron did have prior success as offensive coordinator at San Diego for four seasons.
Baltimore's offense has been in the middle of the pack in total offense for much of Cameron's tenure. The best rank for the Ravens was 13th in 2009 and this year's squad was 19th entering Week 14.
Caldwell was hired by the Ravens this past January after three-year run as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. With Peyton Manning at quarterback, the Colts reached the Super Bowl in Caldwell's first year at the helm, but with Manning sidelined all last season because of a neck injury, the Colts were just 2-14.
