MIAMI — Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Brown will not return for another season.
The Ravens announced Thursday that Brown will be returning to his post in Baltimore.
The move comes just days after the Ravens announced Brown had been fired.
“I want to be clear that Mike Brown has not returned to coaching,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said in a statement.
“He is a man of integrity and character who has led the Ravens to several championships.
I am proud to have worked with Mike as he has made the Ravens one of the premier teams in the NFL.
I will miss him as a coach, but I am excited about the future.”
Brown, 52, is a four-time Pro Bowl selection, a Hall of Fame cornerback, a three-time AFC Defensive Player of the Year and a four time Pro Bowler.
Brown has won two Super Bowls with the Ravens.
The team’s defense was arguably one of their best in the league, finishing second in the NFC East and fourth in the AFC North.
In 2016, the Ravens were able to defend three quarterbacks in the playoffs, allowing only 11 touchdowns and five interceptions.
The Ravens’ offseason moves also included cutting veteran cornerback Mike Wallace, and adding veteran defensive lineman Jason Worilds.
