Ravens Resume Coaching Search

With Jason Garrett deciding to remain with the Dallas Cowboys as offensive coordinator, the Ravens will move on with their coaching search.

Garrett was at team headquarters in Owings Mills, Md. Monday evening and most of Tuesday interviewing with the Ravens' search committee, headed by general manager Ozzie Newsome.

"We did negotiate with Jason Garrett to become our head coach," the team said in a statement. "In the end, he decided to stay in Dallas. We're continuing our second round of interviews. We're excited with the candidates and confident we will select the best head coach for the Ravens."

Newsome attended a practice at the East-West Shrine Game in Houston Wednesday, suspending talks with other candidates for the position.

Now, the group that includes Newsome, owner Steve Bisciotti, president Dick Cass, and senior vice president of public and community relations Kevin Byrne will meet again at 2:00 p.m. Thursday to discuss the next step in the second batch of talks.

The Ravens' list reportedly has Philadelphia Eagles secondary coach John Harbaugh and New York Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, who both interviewed a week after Brian Billick was let go on Dec. 31.

Per reports from ESPN, Garrett will receive a considerable raise and the implied promise that he will eventually supplant Wade Phillips as head coach.

Garrett also interviewed for a second time with the Atlanta Falcons Wednesday to lead that club, a job for which former Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan is said to be in the running.
