Biography

Jerry Rosburg, a 36-year coaching veteran, has guided a strong special teams group since arriving in Baltimore in 2008. Since that time (2008-13), Baltimore has produced the NFL’s No. 1 kickoff return average (25.0) and fourth-most KOR-TDs (5). Especially over the past two seasons (2012-13), the Ravens’ special teams units have excelled. In 2013, Rosburg’s kickoff return unit posted the NFL’s second-best average (26.4), while the punt return team ranked third (14.2 average). WR/RS Tandon Doss had the league’s best punt return average (15.6), while K Justin Tucker earned his first Pro Bowl nod following a record-setting season. Tucker set franchise records in FGs made (38) and FGs attempted (41), with both figures tying (Stephen Gostkowski) for the NFL’s most. He also produced a franchise-record 140 points (tied for sixth in the NFL), while his 6 FGs of 50+ yards tied (several kickers) for the NFL’s most. In the comprehensive annual special teams report created by Rick Gosselin of The Dallas Morning News, the 2013 Ravens ranked fifth in the NFL. (Gosselin’s report is recognized by NFL teams as a special teams measuring stick.) In 2012, WR/RS Jacoby Jones earned a Pro Bowl berth as a return specialist, and Baltimore ranked first in the NFL in kickoff return average (27.3), also setting a team record. Jones, who became the first player ever to record dual KORs of at least 105 yards in a career, tied for a league-leading 3 kick return TDs (2 KORs & 1 PR) and averaged an NFL-best 30.7 yards per kickoff return. Jones also tied an NFL record for longest KOR in Super Bowl history with his 108-yard KOR-TD in Super Bowl XLVII. The kickers were special in 2012, too: P Sam Koch, one of the league’s most accurate and consistent punters, set Ravens single-season punting records with a 47.1 gross average and a 40.8 net average, shattering career bests. Tucker, then a rookie, made 30 of 33 FGAs (90.9%), producing the then-second-best success rate in Ravens single-season history and also the second-best mark by a rookie kicker in NFL history. Gosselin ranked the Super Bowl Champion Ravens second in 2012. The 2010 Ravens special teams were ranked eighth by Gosselin: K Billy Cundiff earned Pro Bowl honors by tying an NFL mark with 40 touchbacks (since kickoffs were moved back to the 30-yard line), and Koch, a 2010 Pro Bowl first alternate, was second in the NFL with 39 punts inside the 20, just three short of the all-time NFL record. Then-rookie RS David Reed led the NFL in KOR average (29.3 ypr) in 2010, and the team ranked third in the league in opponent average starting field position (27.2-yard line). In 2009, Rosburg’s unit ranked second in the league in kickoff return average (26.2). In 2008, special teams ace Brendon Ayanbadejo made his third Pro Bowl, and Koch had the NFL’s fifth-best net punting average (39.9). Prior to his arrival in Baltimore, Rosburg built a successful NFL special teams resume both with the Browns (2001-06) and Falcons (2007) after a strong collegiate coaching career. Also, under his leadership, Cleveland’s special teams units were consistently ranked among the NFL’s best. Over a five-year span (2002-06), the Browns’ special teams were ranked as the top NFL team in Gosselin’s report.
