Former Ravens tight ends coach Wade Harman has joined the Atlanta Falcons' coaching staff, Harman confirmed to The Baltimore Sun.
Harman is the Falcons' new assistant offensive line coach after being replaced by former Houston Texans assistant Brian Pariani as the Ravens' new tight ends coach.
Harman was the Ravens' longest-tenured coach, spending 15 years with the organization after being hired in 1999 as part of former coach Brian Billick's first coaching staff in Baltimore.
Until leaving the staff when the Ravens hired former Texans coach Wade Harman as their new offensive coordinator, Harman was the lone remaining coach from the Super Bowl XXXV championship team.
Harman coached several standout tight ends with the Ravens, including Pro Bowl selections Shannon Sharpe and Todd Heap as well as current tight end Dennis Pitta.
Harman was popular with the players for his low-key, upbeat coaching style.
Harman never sought attention. He simply worked hard and did his job well.
Harman will work in tandem in Atlanta with veteran offensive line coach Mike Tice, a former Minnesota Vikings head coach and Chicago Bears offensive coordinator who played collegiately at Maryland.
