Ravens Insider: Ravens reportedly hiring Doug Mallory, former Michigan defensive analyst, as defensive backs coach


Recommended Posts

New Los Angeles Chargers coach Jim Harbaugh has already poached a couple of coaches and front office staff from the Ravens. Now it’s apparently his brother John’s turn.

Former Michigan defensive analyst Doug Mallory will join the elder Harbaugh brother in Baltimore as the team’s defensive backs coach, according to 247Sports

Mallory, 59, worked for three seasons with Jim Harbaugh at Michigan. He replaces Dennard Wilson, who left to become the Tennessee Titans’ defensive coordinator.

A veteran coach with more than 30 years of experience mostly at the college level, including as defensive backs coach at Maryland from 1997 to 2000, Mallory spent six seasons with the Atlanta Falcons from 2015 to 2020 under coach Dan Quinn, first as a defensive assistant then as defensive backs coach and a senior defensive assistant.

Like the Harbaugh brothers, Mallory comes from a coaching family. His father, Bill, was a longtime coach at Indiana, among other stops, and his brother Mike was a veteran NFL assistant who most recently spent time on Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan staff as a special teams analyst. His other brother Curt is the football coach at Indiana State.

Mallory, who played defensive back for Michigan from 1984 through 1987 under coach Bo Schembechler but was undrafted and never played in the NFL, returned to Ann Arbor in 2021 as a defensive analyst under the younger Harbaugh. This past season, the Wolverines had college football’s top defense, allowing 10.4 points and 247 yards per game en route to the school’s first national championship since 1997.
