The Baltimore Ravens announced that they’ve added former LB Zachary Orr to their coaching and personnel staffs this season.
“Zach will be getting exposure to both the coaching and personnel departments with the Ravens,” General Manager Ozzie Newsome said.
“He’ll spend time learning about coaching at this level, and he’ll learn the ropes with our scouts. We look forward to working with him as he makes the transition from being an active player.”
Orr said he’s really excited about the opportunity with the Ravens after his career was, unfortunately, cut short due to an existing spinal condition that was discovered several months ago.
“I lit up. I was like, ‘Of course!’” Orr said. “I still want to be around this game, especially an opportunity to work with some of the best coaches and some of the best front-office personnel in the league. It’s a great opportunity for me to learn and grow.”
It’s a great opportunity,” Orr added. “I’m thankful because, like I always said, I love football. I still want to be around the game. Even though I can’t play anymore, I still love everything about it.”
