“Wilbert has decided to pursue other coaching and life opportunities,” Harbaugh said

 

Sounds to me like it was mutual and that Wilbert has another job he's after. Solid RB coach who served the Ravens well though, that's for sure.

Fall guy. Plain and simple. Apparently there are still teams interested in Caldwell and Castillo. If they don't get hired elsewhere they could be gone too.

And why did that happen? Because Cam was one of Harbaugh's best buds. So is Castillo.

Apparently Castillo is still highly regarded on staff. He's drawing interest from other teams though via Aaron Wilson's twitter.

Yep!  But the last part concerns me

 

Juan Castillo is drawing interest from other NFL teams, per a source, and is still highly regarded Still on the staff.

Ravens in need of a coaching change on their offense.

Naturally, they change the wrong coach on their offense.

Apparently, it was his choice...  he is taking on a job that is less demanding and he'll be able to spend more time with family as well.

Call me an optimist, but I don't think he'll be the only one who goes this offseason. I can't see us making a flurry of personnel changes (unlike a certain team in Ohio), but I do think the FO knows something big needs to happen. Wouldn't be surprised if they were waiting to see what was happening re Caldwell and Castillo.

 

Then again, I don't think our rushing problems really stemmed from our RBs techniques. I could well see Montgomery being a scapegoat or him just being sick of working as an RBs coach. There's a lot going on that we don't know about.
