BALTIMORE, Md. — Baltimore Ravens special teams head coach Jerry Rosburg has announced his retirement from the NFL.

Rosburg spent the past 11 seasons (2008-18) with the Ravens during his 40-year football coaching career. From 2012-18, the Ravens’ special teams units were consistently acknowledged as one of the league’s best, and in 2017 was named the No. 1 overall unit by Football Outsiders.

During his tenure in Baltimore the Ravens produced the NFL’s top-ranked kickoff return average, most recently leading the league in 2017. Under his guidance, Baltimore produced 13 total kick return touchdowns.

Ravens officials report Chris Horton will take over as special teams coach following the departure of Rosburg. And Baltimore's kicking consultant Randy Brown will take on the task as assistant special teams coach.

Rosburg will remain with the team through off-season until the start of training camp.
