Mike Macdonald is expected to return to the Baltimore Ravens. He spent last season at the University of Michigan.
He is expected to be the Ravens’ new defensive coordinator. He will replace Don “Wink” Martindale, who was let go at the end of the season.
No agreement is yet official. However, TheWolverine.com claims the deal would happen barring a last-minute change of heart.
Macdonald helped turn the Wolverines around in his only season with the team. He helped the Wolverines defense be one of the best in the country.
His defensive unit held teams to 17.4 points per game. It was the 16th best of the 130 FBS Division 1 teams.
He also helped make Aidan Hutchinson a Heisman Trophy finalist. Hutchinson is now considered the first overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
The 34-year-old was employed by the Ravens from 2014 to 2020. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh told Macdonald to take the defensive coordinator position at Michigan with Harbaugh’s brother Jim.
With the Ravens, Macdonald held various positions. He was a trainee, then a defensive assistant for two seasons. He then became the team’s defensive backs coach and linebackers coach.
Prior to joining the Ravens, he spent several seasons with the Georgia Bulldogs. He was a graduate assistant for one season, before spending three seasons as a defensive quality control coach.
He began his coaching career at Cedar Shoals High School in Georgia.
