Ravens Say OL Coach Won’t Be Back Next Season
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens are looking for a new offensive line coach.
The Ravens announced Wednesday night that John Matsko had “been relieved of his duties” after three seasons in Baltimore. Matsko met with head coach John Harbaugh earlier in the day.
The Ravens allowed 40 sacks during the regular season and also struggled to protect quarterback Joe Flacco in the playoffs. He was sacked nine times during two playoff games, including five in a 31-24 loss at Pittsburgh.
Matsko also has been an offensive line coach with Kansas City, New Orleans and St. Louis. He is scheduled to interview for a position with Carolina on Thursday.
Baltimore likely will promote assistant offensive line coach Andy Moeller to replace Matsko.
