ABC 2 News in Baltimore is reporting that the Baltimore Ravens franchise has fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron this morning. This comes on the heels of the Ravens losing two home games back-to-back. ABC2 reports that it’s currently believed that former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell will assume the role for the remainder of the season.
The Ravens offensive coordinator has long drawn the ire of fans for running a very ultra-conservative offense while failing to utilize RB Ray Rice, one of the top running backs in the NFL, effectively. Two weeks ago, against the Charlie Batch led Pittsburgh Steelers, Rice only touched the ball 12 times.
Cameron has been in the college and NFL coaching ranks since 1983. He joined the NFL as the quarterbacks coach, filling the role between 1994-1996 before joining the University of Indiana. He became the offensive coordinator of the San Diego Chargers between 2002-2006. He spent one season on the coaching staff of the Miami Dolphins in 2007 before joining the Baltimore Ravens in 2008.
