The Baltimore Ravens announced Friday that former St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo has been hired by the club.

Spagnuolo will have the title of senior defensive assistant, the same position that Gregg Williams was given with the Tennessee Titans.

Spagnuolo was the New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator last year after being fired by the Rams after the 2011 season.
