Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell has been hired by the Baltimore Ravens to be their quarterbacks coach.

The 57-year-old Caldwell was fired by the Colts on Jan. 17 following a 2-14 season. He went 26-22 in three years with Indianapolis, including a Super Bowl appearance.

After working with Indianapolis standout quarterback Peyton Manning for 10 seasons, Caldwell will turn his attention toward improving Ravens QB Joe Flacco and teaming with offensive coordinator Cam Cameron to improve Baltimore's passing game.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh says Caldwell "will be an excellent fit with our team, coaching the quarterbacks and helping with our offense."

Before taking over as head coach at Indianapolis, Caldwell spent seven seasons as the team's quarterbacks coach. Under his direction, Manning won three NFL MVP awards.
