Baltimore Ravens Hire Eastern Shore Native Todd Washington

The Baltimore Ravens have hired Eastern Shore native Todd Washington as their new assistant offensive line coach. Washington has been working with them for about two weeks.

Washington is a 1994 graduate of Nandua High School and he attended and played football for Virginia Tech as a guard and center. Washington also played for 8 years in the NFL for the Tampa Bay Buchaneers and the Houston Texans.

Washington is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Tony Washington of Melfa.

According to an article in the Baltimore Sun, Washington fills the position left by Andy Moeller, who was promoted to offensive line coach after John Matsko was fired. Last season, Washington coached the offensive line for the UFL's Hartford Colonials.

"We researched Todds career and know hes a demanding coach who builds very good relationships with the players," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "Todd will work well with Andy and our players to make the offensive line the best it can possibly be."

Washington started his coaching career as the offensive line coach at the University of San Diego in 2007. He was promoted to offensive coordinator for the 2009 season.

Ravens Coach Charged With DUI

State police say a Ravens assistant coach was arrested and charged Saturday with driving while under the influence of alcohol.

Andy Moeller, 46, an assistant offensive line coach, was stopped by a trooper for speeding just before 1 a.m. Saturday on the outer loop of the beltway at Greenspring Ave., according to state police spokesman Greg Shipley.

Moeller showed signs of being impaired and was charged with seven traffic violations, including driving while under the influence. Shipley said Moeller signed the citations and was released to a sober driver.

Moeller will enter a not guilty plea, attorney Andrew I. Alperstein said Monday.

"We'll deal with this [case] as it comes My client's position is that we're going to review the evidence and decide how to proceed," Alperstein said.

Court records show Moeller, of Owings Mills, was charged in May with four counts, including driving while under the influence and negligent driving, and was acquitted in late August.

The Ravens said they knew about the arrest but would not comment further.

"We're aware of the situation," said Kevin Byrne, the Ravens' senior vice president of public relations.
Moeller is in his third season with the Ravens after joining the team from the University of Michigan.
