BALTIMORE, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Former New York Giants coach Jim Fassel has found a new home with the Baltimore Ravens, it was announced Wednesday during a Baltimore news conference.
Fassel's immediate title was not disclosed, but the Baltimore Sun reported Fassel might be named a senior adviser, while also serving as assistant head coach.
The 54-year-old Fassel was fired by the Giants in mid-December, but was allowed to finish a disappointing 4-12 season in which the Giants lost their final eight games.
Fassel was expected to be a strong candidate for at least some of the head coaching vacancies this off-season, but he was bypassed for all seven of the openings.
In seven seasons, Fassel posted a 58-53-1 record. He took the Giants to the playoffs three times, including a loss to the Ravens in Super Bowl XXXV during the 2000 season.
Before becoming the Giants' coach, Fassel was the offensive coordinator of the Arizona Cardinals.
