Report: Pitt's Engram to join Ravens staff

The SportsXchange

University of Pittsburgh assistant coach Bobby Engram will join the Baltimore Ravens as wide receivers coach, reported Thursday.

This news comes one day after the Ravens hired Wisconsin running backs coach Thomas Hammock for the same position.

Engram, 41, spent 14 years in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks, Chicago Bears and Kansas City Chiefs, catching 650 passes. He spent a year with the San Francisco 49ers as an assistant before joining the Pitt staff in 2012.

The wide receiver position became available when Jim Hostler left of the Buffalo Bills.

Hammock was Wisconsin's assistant head coach and running backs. He fills the spot that opened when the team parted ways with Wilbert Montgomery.

"The opportunity to coach at the highest level -- and that's what the NFL is -- excites me," Hammock said. "To come to an organization that is committed to winning and has a coaching staff that is so respected is a tremendous opportunity, and I'm looking forward to getting started."

Hammock coached at Wisconsin since 2011, and was previously the offensive coordinator at Minnesota.

"Take a look at Thomas' college resume. It's impressive, and it's clear he can teach, coach and help players become better," head coach John Harbaugh said. "He's an impressive person, and we're looking forward to seeing him coach our players."
