Former Giants coach Fassel signed by Ravens

Wednesday, February 4, 2004


(02-04) 07:38 PST OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) --

Former New York Giants coach Jim Fassel joined the coaching staff of the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday.

Fassel's title was not immediately disclosed, but it is believed he will serve an advisory role and be an assistant head coach to Brian Billick.

Fassel was to be introduced at an afternoon news conference.

The move unites the head coaches for the 2001 Super Bowl, when Billick's Ravens beat Fassel's Giants 34-7.

Fassel was fired following the Giants' 4-12 season, which ended with an eight-game losing streak. He interviewed for head coaching jobs at Arizona, Buffalo and the Washington Redskins.

Fassel hopes his job with the Ravens will keep him busy until he receives an offer to be a head coach. Until that time, he will work to improve an offense that finished last in the NFL in passing in 2003.

The Ravens expect Fassel to assist offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh and aid the progression of the team's two young quarterbacks, Kyle Boller and Anthony Wright.

Fassel is still under contract with the Giants, so New York will pay the balance of the $2.7 million remaining for his final year -- minus what he will receive from the Ravens.
