Clearly no coaching position is completely safe in the NFL nowadays. Regardless of your win/loss record, teams are becoming more demanding of both coaches and players. A perfect example would be Brian Flores. He seemingly turned the Miami Dolphins into a competitor this past season but still found himself without a job at the end of this season.
The Baltimore Ravens are no exception to this rule as it was announced that after ten years with the organization, they were firing defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale. This came as a shock to many fans and analysts as Baltimore’s defense was riddled with injuries all year long, and you could not put all of the blame on Martindale.
Below you will find comments from the Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh about Martindale leaving the organization.
