He didnt take a DC job to coach LBs? hmmm something isn't as it seems

Well it was never official that the Broncos offered him the DC job. A lot of putting two-and-two together, but to say he was offered the job - right now - would be speculation. Even if he was, at his age with his health how could you argue against a position job coaching Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs?

Good...I wasnt too keen on the idea of having a coach named a synonym for "urinates".

Our loss is their gain.

This is a rather big shame imo.

Wink was good with the LB's would have been nice to keep him with them and get an experienced DC with a good track record with us.

well it is probably easier for someone that has any health or family concern to back out of a gig like that if he has to than a full DC job

it could just be that he was trying to think of his employer, rather than it being a "oh I don't want to coach in Denver" thing

That's what I was thinking, with the health concerns and all. He pretty much took a pay cut and demotion - something he doesn't need to do with his track record.

Well, maybe not - if he wasn't offered the DC job. IF he was offered that job, the Ravens job would be more appealing because of:

1) Money - I doubt the Ravens offered more money to be a LB coach than Denver would to be a DC but I suppose it's possible.

2) The Role - At his age and with his health conditions prehaps being a position coach with a stable defense was more appealing at this point.

3) Wanting nothing to do with the Denver Broncos - Now this would be bad, really bad. If a guy McDaniels worked with in NE, wanted to be a DC and was offered this job and only turned it down because of a fear to stay as far away as possible - we're in such bad shape I can't even put it into words. Guys are interviewing for the Raiders Head Coaching job but don't want to take over a top-10 defense? If McD's reputation around the league is that bad, we're in bad, bad shape.

Well if he didn't want to be a DC why not give him our LBs coaching job after we promote our guy?

Did you know that in over 30 years of coaching, Dean Pees has never coached with anyone that's on the Baltimore staff currently? That's remarkably rare.

However, he was a coordinator in NE the entire time Josh was. Also, Pees spent years coordinating and mentoring under Saban... just like Josh was.

This situation gets more amusing every week.

Oh well. Bummer. I liked the idea. I will say, the more I read up on Martindale(sp), the more he sounds like he's been on a fast track for a DC job. So, I'm not crushed... but still a little disappointed we couldn't bring Pees into the fold.

Well amusing isn't the word I'd use... assuming the Broncos wanted Pees which at this point is nothing more than an assumption. I guess we'll have to let it play out.

Ravens make it official with Pees
Posted by Mike Florio on January 26, 2010 11:59 AM ET

As we reported on Monday, the Baltimore Ravens have hired former Patriots defensive coordinator Dean Pees to coach Ray Lewis and the rest of the Ravens' linebackers.

Coach John Harbaugh announced the move Tuesday morning.

"I've know Dean for 27 years, and he's our type of coach -- energetic, hard-working and innovative," Harbaugh said in a release. "He has worked with all three levels of defense -- defensive line, linebackers and secondary. His experience and wealth of knowledge speak for themselves. Dean has also earned respect from his players and fellow coaches because he has been a coordinator. He'll help our linebackers complement the guys up front and in the back end. He'll fit in with us well, and we're excited to get him."

Pees coached Harbaugh at the Miami (Ohio) in the 1980s. Said Harbaugh, "He was the one coach who I thought could play."

"It's a privilege and an honor to be a part of an organization like the Ravens," Pees said. "I'm very anxious and excited for the opportunity to work with Coach Harbaugh and also [defensive coordinator] Greg Mattison, with whom I have coached. I think this is a tremendous opportunity and something that my family and I are very excited about. I can't wait to get to work."

No longer going to work for the Ravens will be former linebackers coach Vic Fangio. The team has announced that Fangio "is no longer with the team." Said the Ravens, "He should have an announcement about his future in football soon."

The Ravens also are looking for a quarterbacks coach, given the departure of Hue Jackson for Oakland.

From rotoworld.com...

Former Patriots defensive coordinator Dean Pees will take over for Vic Fangio as the Ravens' linebackers coach.

Pees had been mentioned as a candidate to lead the defense in Denver and Buffalo after a falling out with the Pats. He and Ravens coach John Harbaugh go back to the 1900s where Pees coached Harbaugh at Miami of Ohio.
