It appears Chuck Pagano, newly named defensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens, was never in the mix for the same job with the Raiders.
Working for the Raiders in 2005 and 2006, the second year through the whole Art Shell fiasco, was enough.
“Two years was plenty,” Pagano told reporters in a story on the National Football Post.
Pagano extended his congratulations to Hue Jackson, with whom he worked on the Ravens staff, noting, “He will earn every cent they pay him. And that won’t be much.”
Pagano left after the 2006 season to become defensive coordinator at the University of North Carolina before joining the Ravens as secondary coach in 2007. He became defensive coordinator Tuesday when Greg Mattison left to become defensive coordinator at the University of Michigan.
