Wilbert Montgomery won’t return to Ravens

OWINGS MILLS (AP) — Baltimore Ravens running backs

coach Wilbert Montgomery won’t be back in 2014.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh says Montgomery “has

decided to pursue other coaching and life

opportunities.”

Montgomery joined the Ravens in 2008.

Running back Ray Rice reached the Pro

Bowl three times under Montgomery’s

guidance, but this season Rice rushed for only 660 yards —

the fewest since his rookie year.

Baltimore’s running game was inconsistent and often

unproductive in 2013, but Harbaugh had nothing negative to

say about Montgomery, who’s coached for 17 seasons.

Harbaugh says, “Wilbert brought a passion to the Ravens

that helped our team, and the individuals on it, reach tremendous

heights.”

Steelers fire offensive line coach Bicknell

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers have fired

offensive line coach Jack Bicknell Jr. after just one season.

The Steelers (8-8) struggled to find any kind of continuity

on the line. Perennial Pro Bowl center Maurkice

Pouncey went down in the season opener with

a knee injury. Pittsburgh ended up using four

different players at the position, part of a unit

that used 10 different starting combinations

in 16 games.

Kelvin Beachum provided some stability at

left tackle, but former second-round picks Mike

Adams and Marcus Gilbert regressed. Pittsburgh finished

27th in the league in rushing and 29th in yards per carry.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was sacked 42 times,

though only 10 times over the final six games as the team

went to a no-huddle offense.
