Ravens coach Andy Moeller suspended

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The NFL on Friday suspended Baltimore Ravens offensive line coach Andy Moeller for two games for violating the league's personal conduct policy, and fined him $47,000.

The suspension stems from Moeller being found guilty of a driving while impaired by alcohol charge last spring.

Assistant line coach and former NFL offensive lineman Todd Washington will coach the line against the Steelers on Sunday, and against the Titans in Tennessee the following week.

"We knew this was coming," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "We've prepared for it. Todd has done a very good job. He's a very good coach. Andy has set things up very well. It's a group effort."

The 47-year-old Moeller received a 60-day jail sentence last spring that was suspended for all but two days that were served at a lockdown treatment facility last November.

He also was given probation and other requirements related to abstaining from alcohol. It was Moeller's third alcohol-related arrest in the past four years.

"I take total responsibility for my actions, and I'm committed to the programs the Ravens and others have afforded me," Moeller said in a statement last spring. "I really appreciate the support the Ravens have given me."

Moeller replaced offensive line coach John Matsko after last season when Matsko was fired.
