There’s no word on what Spagnuolo’s specific responsibilities will be in Baltimore, if they have even been decided at this point. Spagnuolo’s teams have run 4-3 base defenses over the course of his career while the Ravens run a 3-4, although one imagines that Harbaugh has some ideas of how Spagnuolo can assist defensive coordinator Dean Pees despite that difference.
