    Milt Jackson, a 21-year NFL veteran, did an outstanding job last season: the Ravens starting receiver corps in 1999 - Qadry Ismail and Justin Armour � combined for one catch over the 1997 and 98 seasons. But last year, Ismail posted a career-high 1,105 yards on 68 catches and six TDs, while Amour finished with 27 receptions for 538 yards and four TDs. The receiving corps, which includes speedsters Patrick Johnson and Jermaine Lewis, plus productive Brandon Stokley and veteran Billy Davis, was upgraded when the Ravens selected Florida WR Travis Taylor with the 10th pick in the draft last April.

    �Milt is one of the most experienced receiving coaches in the NFL,� said Brian Billick. �I�ve had a working relationship with him for over 20 years. He brings a wealth of knowledge, both schematically and fundamentally, to us.�

    Before the respected Jackson coached the Seattle receivers in 1998, he spent three seasons coaching receivers for the Atlanta Falcons (1994-96). In 1995, the Falcons had three 1,000-yard receivers (Eric Metcalf, Terance Mathis and Bert Emanuel). Milt spent two seasons with the Rams (1992-93) and had jobs with the Colts (1989-91) and Oilers (1986-88). Milt also coached running backs for the Eagles (1985) and was wide receivers coach for the Bills (1983-84) and 49ers (1980-82).

    Jackson entered the collegiate ranks in 1973 at Oregon State. In 1974, he coached at Rice, then coached at the University of California (1975-76), Oregon (1977-78), and UCLA (1979). He was drafted in the seventh round by the San Francisco 49ers as a defensive back in 1967, and was also tabbed by the Philadelphia Phillies the same year as a pitcher.

    Milt and his wife, Brenda, have four children: Garrett, Stephen, Shelley and Jeremy. Jackson earned his B.A. degree from Sacramento State and his master�s from Oregon State.
