Ravens tab Chuck Pagano to head up D
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The Baltimore Ravens have promoted secondary coach Chuck Pagano to defensive coordinator, replacing Greg Mattison.
Ravens cornerback Fabian Washington says the move was "way past overdue" and that Pagano should have long been an NFL defensive coordinator.
Pagano has a reputation as an aggressive defensive coach.
Baltimore cornerback Josh Wilson says that the Ravens know Pagano can handle the job. He says it's "going to be like nothing ever changed."
Mattison was hired Tuesday night to be Michigan's defensive coordinator under new coach Brady Hoke.
