Former Birds Coach Lands With Ravens
Baltimore Inks DBs Coach Dennard Wilson
After a mutual parting of ways, former Philadelphia Eagles defensive backs coach and defensive passing game coordinator Dennard Wilson has quickly found a new home.
Wilson is joining the Baltimore Ravens’ coaching staff, the team announced Tuesday, to coach Ravens defensive backs.
It’ll be a homecoming for the 40-year-old Wilson, who was born and raised in Maryland and spent four years in college playing for Maryland.
“Dennard joining our defensive coaching staff is a strong addition to our team, and he will help us continue to develop our players and scheme in the strongest possible way,” Ravens head coach Jim Harbaugh said in a statement.
“Dennard is a proven coach who has brought the best out of his units consistently throughout his NFL career. His history of working with defensive backs at the highest level will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to our room.”
In Baltimore, Wilson will coach an array of weapons that includes All-Pro cornerback Marlon Humphrey along with safety Marcus Williams, who the Eagles attempted to sign in March of 2022, and safety Kyle Hamilton, Baltimore’s 2022 first-round pick who spent much of his rookie year as a slot cornerback.
Baltimore typically splits the duties of defensive backs coaching into two. Wilson will work in tandem with fellow secondary coach Chris Hewitt, who has been with the organization since 2012.
Joining a team with an already proven defensive backfield, Wilson will have another opportunity to coach up an elite secondary and garner more looks for a future defensive coordinator job.
