Former Dolphins Coach Cam Cameron Fired as Ravens Offensive Coordinator

The Baltimore Ravens have fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron today. Cameron was the Miami Dolphins head coach in 2007, when the team finished with a 1-15 record.

The Baltimore Ravens have fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron following years of criticism at his play calling. Cameron was formerly the head coach of the Miami Dolphins for one season, when they finished 1-15 in 2007.

Cameron joined the Ravens in 2008, following his ouster from the Dolphins. He brought with him John Beck, who he drafted with Miami in the second round of the 2007 draft. Beck could not break into the starting lineup for the Ravens, and eventually was released.

Cameron's offense this season is averaging 25.5 points per game, good enough for ninth best in the league this season, but his conservative play calling has frustrated Ravens fans for years, and ultimately led to his firing. Cameron, 51, will be replaced by former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell.

[Author's Note: The only reason I put this up on the site is because, well, other than Nick Saban, I dislike Cam Cameron the most. Come on, 1-15. John Beck. Just madness. I find this a little funny. Maybe that's wrong, but it's true. And, I feel for Ravens fans who had had to deal with him for the past few years.]
