Ravens hire Dean Pees to coach LBs
The Baltimore Ravens have hired former New England Patriots defensive coordinator Dean Pees as their new linebackers coach.
The 60-year-old Pees ran New England's defense over the past four years after serving for two seasons as the Patriots' linebackers coach.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh announced the hiring Tuesday. Pees was Harbaugh's defensive coordinator during the 1983 season at Miami of Ohio, where Harbaugh played defensive back.
New England allowed fewer than 20 points per game in every season under Pees' guidance. This season New England ranked 11th in the NFL in total defense and fifth in scoring defense.
