Jim Haslett agreed Tuesday to become the Washington Redskins' defensive coordinator, the second major hire for new coach Mike Shanahan . A person familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press about the move on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't made an announcement. Haslett was the head coach of the New Orleans Saints from 2000 to 2005 and interim coach for the St. Louis Rams in 2008 after Scott Linehan was fired. He has also been a defensive coordinator for the St. Louis Rams, Saints and Pittsburgh Steelers.

A week after he was critical of the Ravens' coverage breakdowns, defensive coordinator Dean Pees defended the play of starting safeties Matt Elam and Darian Stewart, saying he thought the team's secondary played well in the victory over the Carolina Panthers. “I think they're doing real well,” said Pees when asked specifically about the two safeties. “I'll admit that I don't think we played very well on the back end in the Cleveland game, and that was a lot of guys. It's never one guy. There are a lot of things that happen there and it wasn't just Matt and it wasn't just Stew.

In the first big surprise of the Ravens offseason, Greg Mattison has left the team to accept the defensive coordinator position at the University of Michigan. The Ravens immediately promoted secondary coach Chuck Pagano to defensive coordinator. Mattison's decision to jump from the NFL to the collegiate level for the same position is uncommon, but a league source said Mattison's ties to Michigan, the college game and new head coach Brady Hoke led him to leave the NFL's 10th-ranked defense.

Responding to a question about whether rookie safety Terrence Brooks could be an option in the nickel back role, Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees' answer probably could have applied to several positions. "It's an option. Everybody is an option right now," Pees said. "We're just trying to find guys. We're kind of moving guys around a little bit. We have two more games really to kind of experiment with where we want to put guys and see where they fit getting ready for the season.

SANTA CLARA - Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio credited "great quarterbacks, great receivers" for opponents' ability to rack up yards against the 49ers in the playoffs. If Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens' receivers can do the same against the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, they'll surely be considered great, too. Fangio has been a fan of Flacco since serving as a Ravens assistant during Flacco's first two seasons. "I remember his first (offseason training) sessions as a rookie, I said to (coach)

Sources have told Inside Lacrosse that Fairfield associate head coach Kevin Conry is set to replace newly named Georgetown head coach Kevin Warne as the Terps' defensive coordinator. Conry was an assistant at Fairfield for five seasons, and spent the past two as associate head coach under Andy Copelan. In 2012, the Stag defense finished 16th in Division I with 9.06 goals against and Fairfield advanced to the ECAC finals before falling to Loyola. At Maryland, Conry inherits a 'D' that finished ninth in DI with 7.94 goals allowed and featured ACC Rookie of the Year Goran Murray and redshirt sophomore goalie Niko Amato, who stopped 54 percent of the shots he saw last season.

The two-a-day practices were always fun because there was so much for an 8-year-old to do. There were cones to set up, tackling dummies to wrestle with, footballs to gather and water bottles to squirt. Young Chuck Pagano did it all for his father, spending hours under the Colorado sun. But some of the boy's best nights - and fondest memories - came when his father, a football lifer if there ever was one, returned home in the early evening, carrying a projector in one hand and game film in the other.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday night that the I ndianapolis Colts will interview Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano for their vacant head coaching job on Tuesday. In Pagano's first season as defensive coordinator, the Ravens finished third in the NFL in scoring defense and third in yards allowed. The Ravens were fourth in rushing defense and second in pass defense. And in Sunday's AFC championship game loss to the New England Patriots, the Ravens forced Patriots quarterback Tom Brady into two interceptions.

The Ravens don't pick a defensive coordinator. They anoint one. The man who gets to run their defense is already well versed with its tradition, is an advocate of its core principles and is eminently familiar with its personalities. For Chuck Pagano, the mantle was passed last Jan. 18, in the wake of a disquieting playoff loss in Pittsburgh after a season in which that defense was besieged — relatively speaking — with problems defending the pass. No sooner had coordinator Greg Mattison opted for a return to the University of Michigan than Pagano was tapped to replace him. Eight months and one lockout later, the back end of the Ravens' defense might be its strength.

Several members of the Ravens played at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium while in college, most notably tailback Ray Rice (Rutgers) and quarterback Joe Flacco (Delaware). Backup safety Jeromy Miles is the only Ravens player who, as a collegian, dressed in the home locker room at the historic facility, which was dedicated in 1959 to “all those who have served and will serve in the Navy and Marine Corps of the United States.” In fact, Miles is the lone active National Football League player who attended the Naval Academy.

Denver goalkeepers Ryan LaPlante and Jamie Faus are polar opposites. LaPlante is a native of Fort Collins, Colo. He's a junior communications major known for his happy-go-lucky personality, and he's left-handed. Faus, a senior, is from Lakeville, Conn. He majors in history, which reflects his more serious demeanor, and he's right-handed. Though so much divides them off the field, come game time none of it matters. They're equals. LaPlante starts each game and plays the entire first half.
