The Baltimore Ravens have promoted linebackers coach Dean Pees to defensive coordinator and retained Cam Cameron as their offensive coordinator.
Pees replaced Chuck Pagano, who left to become head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.
Baltimore's defense ranked third in the NFL under Pagano, and coach John Harbaugh said Monday that under Pees, ''the tradition of this defense will continue, and it will flourish and it will get even better.''
Pees is the former defensive coordinator of the New England Patriots.
Cameron coached the Ravens to a No. 15 ranking in total offense. His four-year contract was set to expire next month.
Baltimore lost to New England 23-20 in the AFC title game last Sunday.
