Ravens hire Doug Mallory as defensive backs coach

The Baltimore Ravens have reportedly found their new defensive backs coach after losing Dennard Wilson to the Tennessee Titans. According to 247 Sports’ Matt Zenits, the Ravens are expected to hire Michigan defensive analyst Doug Mallory to fill the vacant role.

Mallory, 59, will replace the highly-regarded Wilson, who coached the unit for one season before leaving to become the defensive coordinator of the Titans. Mallory will now work under Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh after working under his brother Jim Harbaugh for three seasons with the Wolverines.

Mallory was with the Atlanta Falcons for six seasons before his stint in Michigan, serving as a defensive assistant from 2015 to 2016, defensive backs coach from 2017 to 2019, and as a senior defensive assistant and defensive backs coach in 2020.

Mallory will join a new-look defensive staff for the Ravens under new defensive coordinator Zachary Orr following multiple coaches being hired away this offseason, including defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald, assistant head coach and defensive line coach Anthony Weaver, and Wilson.
