Former All-Pro Zach Orr returns to Baltimore Ravens as inside linebackers coach


OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Zach Orr has returned to the Baltimore Ravens to coach their inside linebackers, just six years after being an All-Pro for them.

Orr, 29, joins new defensive coordinator Mike MacDonald and replaces Rob Ryan, who spent one season coaching inside linebackers in Baltimore before becoming a senior defensive assistant for the Las Vegas Raiders. Last season, Orr coached the outside linebackers for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

This is a reunion between the Ravens and one of their former budding stars. In 2016, Orr was a second-team All-Pro inside linebacker for the Ravens, leading Baltimore with 133 tackles. But he had to abruptly retire after that season because of a congenital neck and spine condition.
