That change we were expecting on the Ravens’ coaching staff has arrived: Baltimore has fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and promoted Jim Caldwell to take his place.

A couple of hours after Dan Patrick first reported on his radio show that a change was coming in Baltimore, several reports emerged that Cameron had been fired. Cameron later confirmed to ABC 2 in Baltimore that the Ravens had let him go, while ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell had been installed as the new offensive coordinator.

It’s rare for a team that’s heading for the playoffs to make a major shakeup on its coaching staff with just three weeks to go in the regular season. But the Ravens, who started the season 9-2, apparently felt that they needed to make a change after back-to-back losses.

Cameron has been the Ravens’ offensive coordinator since 2008, when he got the job following his one season as head coach of the Dolphins. Caldwell was hired as quarterbacks coach this year after being fired as head coach of the Colts.
