Ravens: Ravens hire Martindale to coach linebackers, two assistants go to Indy

OWINGS MILLS -- The Baltimore Ravens have hired former Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Don "Wink" Martindale as their new inside linebackers coach.

Martindale replaces Dean Pees, who was promoted to defensive coordinator last week by coach John Harbaugh.

Martindale interviewed for the Oakland Raiders' head coaching job three years ago.

"Good coach," former Ravens cornerback Fabian Washington said of Martindale.

Martindale has coached for the Raiders, Notre Dame, the University of Cincinnati, Defiance College and Western Kentucky, where Harbaugh's father, Jack Harbaugh, won a Division I-AA championship.

He also coached former Ravens linebacker Brad Jackson at Cincinnati, where John Harbaugh was an assistant coach.

"Love Wink," Jackson said in a text message. "Phenomenal."

Meanwhile, the Ravens lost two assistant coaches to the Indianapolis Colts where former Baltimore defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano is forming his staff.

That includes assistant special teams coach Marwan Maalouf joining the Colts as special teams coach and defensive assistant and former personnel assistant Roy Anderson heading to Indianapolis to coach the safeties.
