Ravens hiring Cullen to coach defensive line

Joe Cullen AP

The Ravens are hiring Joe Cullen as their defensive line coach after Cullen spent the last two seasons in the same role in Tampa Bay.

Per Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, the Buccaneers intially blocked the Ravens from speaking with Cullen while going through their coaching transition.

The Ravens are shuffling their defensive staff after linebackers coach Ted Monachino left to become the Colts defensive coordinator.

Cullen, who has nine years of NFL coaching experience, is still probably best known for being arrested after going through a Wendy’s drive-thru naked. That incident changed his life, and he’s used it to get through to troubled players.

Cullen has also worked for the Lions, Jaguars and Browns.

    Know nothing about Cullen & nothing against him, but I hope this does not mean that we have seen the last of Clarence Brooks.

    Brooks may well end up returning to his job as DL coach in March after his surgery in Feb, but for now he is focusing on recovering according to Baltimore media. Regardless there is a vacancy as a result of Monachino’s departure and Cullen will fill that in some way, shape or form.

    Good for Joe….driving through a Drive-up naked wouldn’t approach the stupid things I’ve done.

    To this day, wherever Joe goes, it’s

    “Hey Helen, look, it’s the naked guy from Wendy’s! Can we get a picture, will you sign our napkins, Naked Guy?”.

    Hopefully Gummy bear Suggs can offer some therapy for this guy..

    Ravens – the team Goodell/Kraft hate the most as it shows with their schedule and penalties against them each year.

    Great hire. Anyone who goes through a drive-thru naked and keeps his job has to be a great employee.
