Super Bowl XLVII between the 49ers and the Ravens will be the last game in Ray Lewis’ lengthy NFL career. Three of Buffalo’s coaches spent time on the Baltimore staff during Lewis’ playing career. Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine coached him for four seasons as one of the team’s two linebacker coaches. Knowing he coached one of the greats leaves him feeling privileged.
“To me when I look back at some point over my coaching career, the fact that I can say I was part of coaching Ray Lewis will be one of my highlights,” he said.
Pettine, who coached Lewis, and Bills defensive line coach Anthony Weaver who lined up with him as his teammate for four seasons in Baltimore reflected on Lewis’ career with Buffalobills.com. Their comments are part of a story on the home page of Buffalobills.com today.
