Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell will join the offensive staff of the Baltimore Ravens, tweets ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Baltimore announced last week that Cam Cameron would return for a fifth season as offensive coordinator, but the team also announced they were still in search of a quarterbacks coach for Joe Flacco. It appears that Caldwell will take over that role.

Caldwell, 57, had visited Pittsburgh this past weekend. The Steelers are searching for a replacement for Bruce Arians, who retired as offensive coordinator in Pittsburgh, before taking the same position with the Colts.

Caldwell, fired after a 2-14 season in Indianapolis, was without quarterback Peyton Manning, who missed the entire season while recovering from neck surgery.

After three seasons–the Colts decided to part ways with Caldwell–who led the team to the Super Bowl in his first season, but this year the team finished with the worst record in the NFL.

Caldwell now joins a Ravens team that barely missed going to the Super Bowl after a tough loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.
