Matt Cavanaugh, the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator, resigned under pressure yesterday after meeting with coach Brian Billick, who finally lost patience with the team's sputtering attack. The Ravens (9-7) lost four of their final six games and missed the playoffs. Much of the blame was heaped on an offense that finished 31st among 32 teams in average yards per game. Former New York Giants coach Jim Fassel, who served as a senior consultant on offense for the Ravens this season, will be considered as a replacement.

Penn State head coach James Franklin likes to say he is constantly evaluating the football program, and he repeated it after Saturday's one-sided loss to Michigan State, another game in which the offense struggled to score. "We're evaluating every single day," Franklin said. "The evaluation will happen between now and the bowl and then after the bowl. " Evidently, it didn't take long for Franklin to evaluate an offense that has been one of the worst in the nation during his two years at Penn State.

Temple lost an offensive mind the same day it gained an offensive standout. Romond Deloatch, a senior wideout from Phoebus High School in Hampton, Va., gave Temple an oral commitment Sunday afternoon. Hours later, the Owls announced that offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler had resigned to take the same position at Auburn. "Auburn is one of the special jobs and special places in college athletics, with a tremendous amount of history and tradition," Loeffler, 37, said in a news release issued by Auburn.

BY NOW, you might have picked up on the fact that those of us who cover the Eagles think this Sam Bradford-Carson Wentz-Chase Daniel quarterback mashup has the potential to become a bit of a circus. John DeFilippo and Frank Reich say they are unfazed. They are the Eagles' quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator, respectively. They've logged time in QB rooms on both coasts and in between. They have seen the good, the bad and the dysfunctional. DeFilippo, especially, knows from circuses: He was the offensive coordinator last season in Cleveland, where the game plan sometimes depended upon whether Johnny Manziel showed up partying somewhere on Instagram before Tuesday evening, when planning for that week's practice was complete.

Drew Gordon, who was in charge at La Salle for nine years, and Chris Felton, who directed Central Bucks West for four seasons, recently joined Tom Kirk's staff as offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator, respectively.

Matt Limegrover knows he has much work ahead of him as Penn State's new offensive line coach. The Nittany Lions' line has not been up to Big Ten standards in two years under head coach James Franklin, having allowed 83 sacks during that period. But Limegrover, who was hired Jan. 13 after five seasons as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Minnesota, said there is talent - mostly young talent - on the unit and that he'll work to find the best five when spring practice begins next month.

MOBILE, Ala. - Hands in pockets, the two former backup quarterbacks stood alone together high in the north end of the bleachers at Ladd-Pebbles Stadium. Doug Pederson and Frank Reich spent a good deal of Thursday morning's Senior Bowl practice just talking, but there was also football to watch. And, boy, do they know how to watch football. Pederson and Reich spent most of their former NFL lives just observing the game from the sidelines. Head coaches and offensive coordinators come from all walks of football, but most of the successful ones never achieved greatness as players.

Doug Pederson was introduced to the West Coast offense in 1996. Discarded by the expansion Panthers and then the Dolphins for the umpteenth time, the quarterback signed with the Packers early that season. He was only the third-stringer behind Brett Favre and Jim McMahon, but that first year playing for coach Mike Holmgren, in the system that Bill Walsh had mostly created, started a journey that has Pederson bringing the West Coast offense back to the Eagles some 20 years later. The Eagles, of course, have primarily had a West Coast-based system for most of the last two decades.

The Eagles hired former Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo as quarterbacks coach Thursday. He joins offensive coordinator Frank Reich to give the Eagles two coaches on the offensive staff who called plays in the NFL last season. DeFilippo, 37, graduated from Radnor High School when his father, Gene, was the athletic director at Villanova. He reportedly drew interest from the San Francisco 49ers for their head coaching vacancy and the Los Angeles Rams to be offensive coordinator.

THE EAGLES made official the hiring of offensive coordinator Frank Reich on Wednesday evening, a day after Jim Schwartz took charge of new coach Doug Pederson's defense. Pederson's staff is nearly complete. The announcement that Reich, who spent last season as the Chargers' offensive coordinator, was officially on board included the names of 14 other assistants. Pederson seems only to lack a quarterbacks coach - reports say former Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo will get that role - and a defensive line coach to replace Chip Kelly's righthand man, Jerry Azzinaro.

Doug Pederson's first big acquisition as Eagles head coach was locking up Jim Schwartz as defensive coordinator. Schwartz, 49, spent five seasons as the Detroit Lions' head coach from 2009-13. He was a defensive coordinator from 2001-08 with the Tennessee Titans and in 2014 with the Buffalo Bills. Schwartz spent last season working with the NFL's officiating department and was a popular candidate for teams seeking a defensive coordinator.  "I'm excited to have him, his track record and his defenses that have led the National Football League," Pederson said.

Doug Pederson doesn't know Sam Bradford. He hasn't met Sam Bradford yet. He first did a deep dive on Sam Bradford the Quarterback in 2010, when Pederson was an offensive quality-control coach for the Eagles and Bradford was leaving Oklahoma for the NFL draft as the No. 1 overall pick. The Eagles were never going to get Bradford in that draft, but Pederson had researched him anyway, poring over every throw of Bradford's terrific college career, forming an impression that Pederson carried with him Tuesday to his introductory news conference as the Eagles head coach.

AT 2 P.M. Tuesday, Jeffrey Lurie will introduce the Eagles' 23rd head coach, Doug Pederson, at a NovaCare news conference. Presumably, Lurie also will entertain questions about where his franchise is headed, why Howie Roseman is again in charge of personnel, and why Roseman hasn't been available to reporters since rejoining the football side of Lurie's operation upon the firing of Chip Kelly three weeks ago. It ought to be a fun time for all. ...
