Ravens add two to coaching staff

April 03, 2009|By From Sun staff reports

The Ravens have added two coaches to John Harbaugh's staff, promoting Roy Anderson to defensive assistant and hiring Matt Weiss as head coaching assistant, the team announced Thursday.

Anderson, 29, spent three years as a player personnel assistant and last year split time between personnel and the coaching staff. He worked primarily as a coaching assistant with the defensive line but also compiled self-scouting reports and did computer game-planning.

This season, Anderson will continue to work under defensive line coach Clarence Brooks while handling defensive quality-control duties that include self-scouting, analyzing game film and breaking down opponent tendencies.

"Roy was a big part of what we did last year," Harbaugh said in a statement released by the team. "He helped us prepare our coaches and players. He's a bright, young coach with a tremendous future."

Weiss, 26, joins the Ravens from Stanford, where he served three years as a graduate assistant and one year as quality-control coach under coach Jim Harbaugh, John's brother.

Weiss will help John Harbaugh with administrative duties and serve as quality-control coach on defense.

"Matt has a great football background and has built a tremendous foundation as a coach," Harbaugh said. "He'll be very valuable to our staff and players as we go forward."
