John Harbaugh Names Four Offensive Coordinator Candidates

Posted Jan 21, 2014

John Harbaugh has conducted several interviews, including with coaches from the college ranks.

Head Coach John Harbaugh has given a key update on the Ravens’ search for a new offensive coordinator.

In a conversation at the Under Armour Performance Center Tuesday morning, Harbaugh for the first time named some of the candidates interviewing for the position.

The list of candidates who have already interviewed includes Wide Receivers Coach Jim Hostler, former Redskins Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan and former Lions Offensive Coordinator Scott Linehan. Harbaugh also has an interview scheduled later this week with Pittsburgh Steelers Running Backs Coach Kirby Wilson.

In addition to the four names provided, Harbaugh has also interviewed other coaches throughout the week. His candidates include coaches from the college ranks.  

Hostler, Shanahan and Linehan all have previous experience as offensive coordinators, and Wilson is a well-respected coach with a strong track record in Pittsburgh.

Harbaugh has cast a wide net during the search, conducting one to two interviews each day last week and throughout the weekend after the Detroit Lions hired former Offensive Coordinator Jim Caldwell on Jan. 14. Harbaugh has been conducting the interviews.

During the process, Harbaugh has also spoken with coaches about the vacant quarterbacks coach job.

Previously, it was unknown if the Ravens would hire a new quarterbacks coach or leave the position open like last season. The final decision on hiring a quarterbacks coach will be made once the Ravens decide on an offensive coordinator and then build an offensive staff that best fits the group.

He elaborated on the type of coach he wants to hire, saying he is looking for a somebody that fits the offensive philosophy, which is an aggressive, physical, creative and downhill attacking offense.

There is not an exact timetable for making a decision, but Harbaugh said that he does not want this process to take much longer. He wants the process to be thorough, but decisive.
