Ravens fire offensive coordinator Cam Cameron
With three games to go in the regular season, the Baltimore Ravens (9-4) fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron on Monday, following the Ravens’ second straight loss.
Cam Cameron, who spent five seasons with the team, will be replaced by quarterbacks coach and former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell.
“With our coaches and players, the solution is in the building,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said, according to NFL.com. “We are going to make the most of our opportunities going forward, and this change gives us a better possibility to achieve our goals.”
The Baltimore Sun reported that Harbaugh made the decision to fire Cameron following the Ravens’ 31-28 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins. Harbaugh and Cameron reportedly got into an argument on the sidelines and in the locker room, though Harbaugh denies any such exchange.
According to the Baltimore Sun, running back Ray Rice is on pace to have his fewest carries since 2009. Quarterback Joe Flacco was frustrated with Cameron moving away from the no-huddle offense that was successful early in the season.
Caldwell is familiar with the no-huddle offense, but has never called plays in the NFL.
The Ravens’ offense ranks ninth in the league in points per game (25.5) and 18th in yards per game (344.4).
