Ravens officially name Engram wide receivers coach

The Ravens officially completed their staff Tuesday by announcing the hiring of new wide receivers coach Bobby Engram.

Engram, 41, is entering his fourth season coaching and is coming off two years as the University of Pittsburgh’s receivers coach. He worked with the 49ers as an offensive assistant in 2011 following a 14-year NFL career as a receiver with the Bears, Seahawks and Chiefs.

“When you combine Bobby’s NFL pedigree as a player and his coaching experience, you see why we’re excited to add him to our staff,” coach John Harbaugh said in a statement. “He comes highly recommended, he did an outstanding job at San Francisco and Pitt, and he’s an impressive person. He’ll help our receivers and our offense become better.”

In 2013, Engram guided true freshman Tyler Boyd, who earned second-team All-ACC honors and set Pitt records for receptions (85) and receiving yards (1,174) by a freshman. Both records were formerly held by Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Senior Devin Street completed his Panthers career in 2013 after setting school marks in all-time receptions (202) and finishing third in receiving yards (2,901).

With the 49ers in 2011, Engram helped the team win its first NFC West title in nine seasons and reach the NFC championship game.

Engram expressed excitement to be joining the Ravens.

“What an opportunity to join a team that has won, knows how to win and does all it can to make sure they continue to win,” Engram said in a statement. “I’m ready to be part of that and ready to work.”
