04:21 PM ET 02.09 | Ravens fans can't get enough of Ray Lewis right now, and as he rides off into the sunset, fans and coaches alike are begging the future Hall of Famer to stay with the team. We all know that Lewis returning as a player is completely out of the question, as it would be a Manti Te'o-like con-job to get the public all jazzed up emotionally. But while he won't be returning to the sidelines as a player, the Ravens are very open to the idea of him returning as a coach. Head coach John Harbaugh spoke on the matter and said that if Lewis wants a job within the Ravens organization, he's more than earned the right to ask for one. While Ray returning to the Ravens would be a dream for Ravens fans, it's not going to happen anytime soon. Lewis has a multi-million deal with ESPN to serve as a studio analyst for the network's NFL coverage , and to return to football after retiring defeats the entire purpose of retirement in the first place. Lewis' son Ray-Ray III recently committed to Lewis alma mater, the University of Miami.

Ray Lewis, a COACH?!?! LMFAO!

Dude was a GREAT linebacker, HOF without a doubt, but a COACH? You need to be smart to coach players, and "smart" isn't a word you'd use to describe Ray Lewis.

Can't see Lewis a coach. at least not yet
