On a day where Chuck Pagano was introduced as the new head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, the Ravens remained mum on the status of their own coaching staff Thursday. However, all indications are that linebackers coach Dean Pees remains the clear front-runner to succeed Pagano as the Ravens' defensive coordinator, and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron will stay in his current position. Coach John Harbaugh called a news conference for 11 a.m. Friday to discuss his coaching staff, ahead of owner Steve Bisciotti and the organization's top decision-makers' annual State of the Ravens address next week.

It advised them of a meeting with Bisciotti on Wednesday morning where the owner explained the organization's handling of Rice's legal issues and subsequent release.

Manager Buck Showalter finally completed his 2011 staff Tuesday by selecting a bench coach who spent years battling the Orioles at Memorial Stadium. Looking for a quality infield instructor with the added bonus of managerial experience, Showalter hired an old friend, former New York Mets manager Willie Randolph. It's a reunion of sorts for Showalter, who gave Randolph his first big league coaching job with the New York Yankees in 1994. "It's kind of surreal in a way; as a young coach, I learned the ropes as a third base coach under Buck Showalter," said Randolph, who agreed to a one-year deal with the Orioles after spending two seasons as bench coach with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Growing up in suburban Toronto, Kimbal Mackenzie used to dream about “playing basketball in the states for college.” The 6-foot-1, 185-pound combo guard thought the best way to make that happen was to leave Canada for high school and enroll at a basketball powerhouse somewhere in the U.S. Two years after enrolling at John Carroll, Mackenzie's plan has come to fruition. The second-team Baltimore Sun All-Metro selection committed to Bucknell on Friday, picking the Bison over offers from Loyola, Siena and UMBC.

The Orioles will officially complete their coaching staff early this week by announcing the hire of Braves special assistant Dom Chiti as the club's new bullpen coach. With the hiring of Chiti and new pitching coach Dave Wallace, who was Braves minor league pitching coordinator the past four seasons, the Orioles have to be pleased how their coaching search panned out. They signed two well-respected, experienced coaches. Braves general manager Frank Wren, who within two weeks lost two of his most trusted assistants, is probably less pleased.

The Ravens announced this morning that coach John Harbaugh will hold an 11 a.m. news conference to discuss his coaching staff in the wake of former defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano's leaving to become the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. It's unknown whether Harbaugh will announce any changes or simply address the process of filling his coaching staff. However, all indications are that Dean Pees, the Ravens' linebackers coach the past two seasons, will be promoted to defensive coordinator and Cam Cameron, the offensive coordinator the past four seasons, will remain in his current position.

The Ravens aren't done overhauling their offensive coaching staff with further changes anticipated following a season where the offense struggled to regularly manufacture points and yards. Now that the Ravens have hired offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak and quarterbacks coach Rick Dennison, they still have other positions to fill. "It's going to be in flux a little bit," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday during an introductory news conference for Kubiak and Dennison at team headquarters.

The Ravens coaching staff might be a victim of the front office's success and its ability to draft or sign good players. You never hear John Harbaugh mentioned as a possible NFL Coach of the Year. Brian Billick was never a serious candidate either, even though he had a good run in Baltimore from 1999 until 2008. Few of the experts expected the Ravens to win the AFC North, much less play in the Super Bowl in New Orleans. A 9-7 or 8-8 record was a more realistic possibility. Miracles still happen.

The Orioles have finalized their spring training rosters -- or as finalized as they can be, barring any additional signings and with a week to go until pitchers and catchers report to the Ed Smith Stadium complex in Sarasota, Fla. Below is the 40-man roster, followed by the players who received nonroster invitations, coaches and additional staff. The list includes numbers for all of the players. One possibly interesting note -- Gausman is listed as No. 31. New Orioles pitching coach Dave Wallace will wear Gausman's old No. 37 jersey this season, according to the list below.

Boys' Latin junior Dominic Maggio has orally committed to play football at Wake Forest in 2016. Maggio, a kicker and punter for the Lakers, was an All-Metro first-team selection last season after he averaged 44.7 yards per punt. He placed 11 punts inside his opponents' 20-yard line and thumped a 62-yard punt in a game vs. St. Paul's. "He's so good we're going to have to change our coverage," Boys' Latin coach Ritchie Schell said last season . "Sometimes, he out-kicks our coverage.

Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees won't know for sure until his players strap on the pads and can start making tackles, but if the way his young defense is getting to the ball in organized team activities is any indication, the Ravens might be nearing a return to their fast, ball-swarming defense of old. "I think [the team speed] has improved a lot," Pees said. "It looks like it out here in OTAs, but again, we've got to see it when all the pads are on. … But I really do believe that we've gotten faster.

As a freshman in college, Jourdan Stickler played in a rural town for an infamously intense coach . When the former Annapolis star decided to leave Morehead State, he looked for the opposite. In Houston Baptist, Stickler - a former Baltimore Sun All-Metro first-team selection - found what he was looking for. “I was really impressed with the coaching staff,” said Stickler, who signed with the Huskies last month . “Particularly the fact that [the coaches] seemed laidback, in contrast to Morehead, where I had a coach that could be described as 'in your face.' … It's in the heart of Houston, so the city is all around it compared to Morehead, which was in a rural area.

Mount St. Mary's ranked 67th out of 67 Division I programs in offense and points per game and 66th in assists per game and scoring margin. But the number that resonated most with coach Tom Gravante was the team's 1-15 record in 2014. “This was one of my toughest seasons,” said Gravante, whose previous worst mark in 20 years as a head coach was a 2-12 record in 2008. “I think I posted two or three wins once before. But to go 1-15, this is a tough year, a real tough year. You don't want to expect something like this or anticipate something like this, but under the circumstances of graduating 22 young men last year and not having a lot of experience coming back, we were hopeful and we battled, but it became what it was.” A 9-5 victory over Northeast Conference foe Wagner on April 19 helped the Mountaineers of joining first-year program Monmouth as the only winless teams in Division I. Gravante acknowledged that a 14-game losing streak to open the season began to weigh on the players.

In what amounted to a second "bye" week for the Ravens, John Harbaugh and staff took advantage of the extra three days' down time after the Atlanta loss to do more self-analysis. What that introspection produced will not be known until Sunday's game in Charlotte against the Carolina Panthers — if then. But Harbaugh left no doubt during his Monday meeting with the media that there was a lot to review. He stopped short of identifying the team's problem areas, but you can assume some of it had to do with the pass rush, pass coverage and slow starts on offense.

While the Ravens' brass will undoubtedly reiterate its intention to draft the “best-player available” countless times before May's draft, it is already widely assumed that the team will use its first pick to either augment the offensive line or add another pass-catching weapon for quarterback Joe Flacco . It would be hard to quibble with either choice but watching the Seattle Seahawks' dismantling of the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII was...

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. How would you rate the Maryland women's chances against Notre Dame in Sunday night's Final Four? Jeff Barker: The Terps will be the underdog, of course. Again. I think they can hang with the Irish - they did on Jan. 27, losing 87-83. In order to prevail, Maryland would need an even stronger game than it played in eliminating Louisville in the Elite Eight . That was a game in which Maryland was energized and willful, but the Terps were hardly flawless at the end. Maryland's advantage on Sunday is inside.
