Biography

Matt Weiss is in his eighth year with the Ravens and first as an offensive assistant. The 2016 campaign marks his first coaching role with an offensive unit, where he will work primarily assisting quarterbacks coach Marty Mornhinweg. In 2015, Weiss served as the cornerbacks coach, aiding a defensive group that finished first in the league against the pass (183.3 ypg allowed) over the season’s final eight games, with CB Jimmy Smith recording a career-high 3 INTs. Weiss spent the 2014 season as defensive quality control/linebackers assistant, working closely with Don Martindale (linebackers coach). Weiss was originally promoted in February 2012 to defensive quality control coach with responsibilities including finding tips and tendencies on opponents’ offenses, self-scouting the defense and drawing up the playbook. Weiss began his NFL coaching career with the Ravens in 2009, spending three seasons as head coach John Harbaugh’s assistant. In that role, he aided Harbaugh with administrative duties, worked in a defensive quality control capacity and supported the team’s secondary coaches. A Connecticut native, Weiss brought four years of experience to the Ravens from Stanford University, where he worked under then-Cardinal head coach Jim Harbaugh.
