The Baltimore Ravens officially interviewed former Detroit Lions coordinator Scott Linehan for the vacancy of offensive coordinator. The offensive coordinator position is just one of a few coaching spots open at the moment; one of and most important.
The position that is being offered is looked at one of great opportunity. Baltimore had a struggling offense last season but they have pieces that most coaches would love to have. Let’s start with a Super Bowl MVP quarterback with a huge arm, young wide receivers with speed and talent and a running game that, though lacking last season; has the potential for great things as shown in the past. And it’s not just the players. The Baltimore Ravens franchise is considered one of the top tier organizations not just in the NFL but all of professional sports. Owner Steve Bisciotti has laid a foundation of a culture that breeds respect, professionalism, and winning at the highest levels.
Your guess is as good as mine as to who may fill this vacancy. There’s truly no rush and a decision will be made in ample time. Personally I’m good with whoever Ozzie Newsome and John Harbaugh deems worthy. Keep it in house or go looking outside. Have to trust and respect the men that have made the decisions in the past. Look at Caldwell. One year as the offensive coordinator after a few years of being a quarterbacks coach and he landed himself another head
The Ravens have a knack for doing it right.
