Head Coach JERRY ROSBURG, a 39-year coaching veteran, has guided an exceptional special teams group over his nine seasons (2008-16) with the Ravens. During his tenure in Baltimore, the Ravens have produced the NFL’s No. 1 kickoff return average (25.2) from 2008- 16. In the past six seasons (2011-16), Baltimore has 8 total kick return TDs (4 PR & 4 KOR), ranking as the NFL’s fourth most. Under Rosburg’s direction since 2008, six Ravens have earned Pro Bowl honors, including K Justin Tucker and LS Morgan Cox twice each (see Quick Hit in chart at right). In the past ve seasons (2012-16), the Ravens’ special teams units have consistently been acknowledged as one of the league’s best. In the annual special teams report from The Dallas Morning News, senior NFL writer Rick Gosselin has ranked Baltimore in the NFL’s Top 5 for ve-straight seasons, including rst in 2015 (2016: fth; 2015: rst; 2014: fth; 2013: fth; 2012: second). (Gosselin’s report is recognized by NFL teams as a special teams measuring stick.) No other NFL team has been in the Top 5 in each of the past ve seasons. ADDITIONAL COACHING HIGHLIGHTS: Baltimore’s kickers have been exceptional under Rosburg’s tutelage. Entering 2017, two-time Pro Bowl K Justin Tucker is the most accurate kicker in NFL history with an 89.8 % on eld goal attempts (168 of 187). Tucker, who Rosburg scouted and helped sign as a rookie free agent, owns the most FGs (168) since entering the NFL in 2012. In 2016, Tucker produced perhaps the best season ever by an NFL kicker, recording a single-season franchise-record 141 points. His 10 FGs of 50+ yards tied (Blair Walsh, 2012) for the most such kicks in NFL single-season history. Pro Bowl P Sam Koch, who earned his rst trip to Hawaii in 2015, is one of the league’s most accurate and consistent punters. He set single-season franchise punting records in 2014 with a 47.4 gross average (third in NFL) and a 43.3 net average (No. 1 in NFL), also shattering career bests. Rosburg’s return units have been outstanding as well, ranking third in the NFL in punt return average (11.3) in 2015 and leading the league in KOR average both in 2014 (28.3) and 2012 (27.3). Also, since 2014, the Ravens have 12 blocked kicks, ranking No. 1 in the NFL. 2016 RECAP: Ravens ranked fth in Rick Gosselin’s annual special teams report, marking the fth-straight season the Ravens have been in the Top 5, the only team to accomplish the feat...K Justin Tucker, who had perhaps the best season ever by an NFL kicker, earned his second Pro Bowl and was a unanimous All-Pro selection...He recorded a single-season franchise-record 141 points, connecting on 38 of 39 FGs (lone miss was a block)...His 38 FGs ranked rst in the NFL, while he was 10-for-10 from 50+ yards, tying (Blair Walsh, 2012) for the most such kicks in NFL single-season history...An NFL single-season record 24 of Tucker’s 38 FGs made came from 40 yards or beyond (he was 24-of-24 on such boots)...LS Morgan Cox also earned his second Pro Bowl.
