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.
