Ravens hire Roman as assistant line coach

OWINGS MILLS -- The Baltimore Ravens hired former Houston Texans quarterbacks coach Greg Roman as their assistant offensive line coach. Roman is an 11-year NFL assistant, including stints with the Carolina Panthers and the Texans coaching the offensive line, tight ends and quarterbacks. Roman will work under assistant head coach/offensive line coach Chris Foerster who's entering his second season in Baltimore.

The Ravens are expected to announce this week the hiring of former Miami Dolphins running back and assistant Tony Nathan as running backs coach. He was a teammate of Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome at the University of Alabama and coached the Florida International University running backs for the past three seasons.

A third-round pick of the Dolphins in 1979, Nathan rushed for 3,543 career yards and caught 383 passes before retiring in 1987.

Nathan caught 10 passes in Super Bowl XIX and registered another 10 receptions the following year in a 1985 divisional playoff win over the Cleveland Browns.

"Our backs know Tony has done it all before and he brings something they can believe in," FIU coach Don Strock said in a statement about Nathan in the team's media guide. "He's proven to be an excellent coach. He relates to his players and they respect him."
