The re-building of Baltimore's offensive staff is quickly underway.
The Ravens hired Marty Mornhinweg as the team's new quarterbacks coach Wednesday morning, a day after hiring Marc Trestman as the offensive coordinator. Mornhinweg will fill the spot that opened when Rick Dennison agreed to become Gary Kubiak's offensive coordinator in Denver.
"Marty is a great coach and is going to be a great addition for us," Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh said. "I know he'll work really well with Marc and really well with Joe [Flacco]."
Mornhinweg, 52, has spent the last two seasons as the New York Jets offensive coordinator. He was previously the offensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles, where he worked with Harbaugh on Andy Reid's staff.
He has plenty of experience working in a West Coast offensive system, where he coached Pro Bowl quarterbacks Brett Favre, Steve Young and Donovan McNabb.
"Marty has a great history and background with the offense that we were running last year and that Marc is going to build on this year," Harbaugh said. "He's a great quarterback teacher – fundamentals, footwork, reads, quarterback mechanics in the passing game. I'm really excited about that."
Mornhinweg has worked in the NFL since 1995, and the Ravens will be his sixth team during that time. He has mostly been an offensive coordinator or quarterbacks coach, with a two-year stint as the head coach of the Detroit Lions.
"Marty and I talked yesterday for a little while," Trestman said. "I've followed Marty's career. I know he was with Andy Reid. He was with John, Juan [Castillo] during his time in Philadelphia, and he has great success as a quarterbacks coach and play caller. I'm really looking forward to working with Marty."
