Cam Cameron was fired as the Ravens' offensive coordinator in early December after a loss to the Redskins.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome says the decision to fire offensive coordinator Cam Cameron in December was orchestrated solely by coach John Harbaugh.

Cameron was dismissed the day after Baltimore lost to the Washington Redskins on Dec. 9. There had been speculation either Newsome or owner Steve Bisciotti pushed Harbaugh into making the call.

Asked Friday if that was the case, Newsome said "No!" eight times and added, "That wouldn't be fair to John."

Quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell replaced Cameron and helped rejuvenate quarterback Joe Flacco and the offense. The Ravens are heading to the Super Bowl after scoring 90 points in three playoff games.

Newsome says Harbaugh discussed firing Cameron during the ride home after the Redskins game, then solidified his decision the next day.
