CALDWELL RAISED HIS COACHING CAREER WITH THE RAVENS
Tue, 29 Jan 2013 01:30 AM EST

Jim Caldwell enjoys his job as offensive coordinator of the Ravens, and he’s reasonably good at it.

Before taking over in early December Caldwell had never held the position at any level – yet the Ravens’ attack has prospered under his direction. Quarterback Joe Flacco has seemed sharp, the play-calling has been unpredictable and Baltimore has scored 90 points in three playoff games to earn a berth in the Super Bowl.

Caldwell’s success prompted head coach John Harbaugh to ask him to retain the post in 2013. Caldwell appreciates the chance, but has no intention of making ”Offensive Coordinator, Baltimore Ravens” the last line on his resume.

The 58-year-old Caldwell wants to be a head coach. He probably did it in Indianapolis from 2009-11, and is itching for another crack at the top job in his profession.

”At some point in time, if the Lord wills it, I’d really like to be able to do it again,” Caldwell said. ”But it might not occur. Everybody in our profession is looking for a chance to run their own program, and I’m no different than any person else in that regard.”

Caldwell may have gotten the chance to at least interview for an opening if he wasn’t so busy helping the Baltimore Ravens earn a date with San Francisco in the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Caldwell actually is a viable applicant for a head coaching job. He took the Colts to the Super Bowl in 2009 and played an important role in the development of quarterback Peyton Manning. He’s also provided the Ravens offense with a lift after replacing the fired Cam Cameron on December10.

In the meantime, Caldwell is preparing for the Super Bowl while many other coaches are at home looking forward to next year. So, notwithstanding not getting an interview, he doesn’t have any regrets.

”None at all, I’d definitely rather be right where I am at the moment, with you asking me this question,” he said. ”It just doesn’t happen that often in your career to be sufficiently lucky to get have this opportunity. I’m grateful. The other stuff, they will take care of themselves somewhere down the road.”

Caldwell deserves lots of credit for Baltimore’s surprising run to the Super Bowl. In the 6 games since he’s taken over, the Ravens have averaged 26.2 points and 406.2 yards of offense. In the playoffs, Baltimore has scored touchdowns on 8 of 10 trips inside the opponent’s 20-yard line.

”What Coach Caldwell has done has kept the offense simple and basic,” running back Ray Rice announced. ”He put the game into Joe Flacco’s hands, and Joe has done a fine job – outstanding job – of leading us to where we needed to be. We are right here where we wish to be right now.” NFL spreads

And maybe, so is Caldwell. For now, anyway, he voiced genuine appreciation and thanks when talking about being asked to return in 2013.

”I’m excited about it. Actually very honored and humbled as well,” he said. ”It’s an amazing opportunity for me, particularly working inside this organization. I am looking forward it, but right now I’m looking forward to this next ball game we’ve got coming up. That is the most important thing.”
