Lewis, former Eagles wide receiver from 2003-08, spent the past season coaching the Ravens wideouts.

Prior to this, he served under his former coach Andy Reid, first as WR coach from 2017-20 before moving to running backs coach.

Lewis was also a member of the inaugural Doug Pederson coaching staff for the Eagles in 2016 as WR coach. He was let go after just one season to make way for Mike Groh.

Baltimore’s coaching staff remains a popular spot for coordinator candidates after being one of the best teams on both sides of the ball, with Ravens LB coach Zach Orr receiving an interview from the Green Bay Packers and DL coach Anthony Weather speaking with the Miami Dolphins.


Joe Horitz

The Los Angeles Chargers have found a Raven to pair with Harbaugh.

Per ESPN, the team is hiring Joe Horitz, director of player personnel for the Baltimore Ravens, as their new general manager.

The 48-year-old Horitz was a Ravens lifer, joining the organization in 1998 as a personnel assistant before moving up in various scouting roles. 

He was promoted to his final Baltimore position in 2019 when Eric DeCosta became general manager, where the two have since built one of the top rosters in the league.

Now, Horitz joins new Chargers head coach Jim Harbaugh, where the two will hope to build a roster in Los Angeles that brings similar success.   

Ben Johnson

Ben Johnson, long expected to be named the Washington Commanders’ head coach, has decided to stay in Detroit per NFL Network.

Johnson, the Lions offensive coordinator for the past two seasons, has brought the team to new heights offensively in both the air and ground game, averaging 27.1 points per game this season on the way to their first NFC title game appearance since 1991.

Despite his name being floated as the top head coaching candidate across the league, teams with a vacancy did not quite see it this way, per ESPN. 

The Commanders, with a new GM, owner, and the number two overall pick in the draft, will now have to move on to their next choice.Aaron Glenn, Detroit’s defensive coordinator, also reportedly had an in-person meeting with Washington.

Arthur Smith

The Pittsburgh Steelers have found their new full-time OC.

Per NFL Network, Arthur Smith is joining the Steelers staff to run their offense.

Smith spent the previous three seasons as the head coach and play caller for the Atlanta Falcons, finishing 7-10 each year.

Prior to his head coaching stint, Smith had spent a decade within the Tennessee Titans organization, promoted to offensive coordinator in 2019. In his two seasons running the offense, Smith took the offense to new heights and two playoff berths. Under his watch, Derrick Henry led the NFL in rushing yards and touchdowns in both seasons, including 2,027 yards on the ground in 2020.

The Steelers are coming off a season in which they made the playoffs despite changing coordinators midseason, firing Matt Canada and replacing him with committee of RBs coach Eddie Faulkner as interim OC and QB coach Mike Sullivan as the playcaller.
