BaltimoreRavens.com Staff Writer
Head Coach John Harbaugh and the Ravens are in the process of finding their next offensive coordinator after Greg Roman left to pursue other opportunities.
Here are the latest reports on the search:
Ravens coach John Harbaugh has interviewed both QBs coach James Urban and TE coach George Godsey for his offensive coordinator opening.
Urban, 49, has spent the past four seasons as Baltimore’s quarterbacks coach. He has been an NFL assistant coach since 2004, working previously with the Eagles (2004-10) and Bengals (2011-17).
Godsey, 44, joined the Ravens in 2022 as their tight ends coach. He was the Texans’ offensive coordinator for two seasons (2015-16) and was co-offensive coordinator/tight ends coach with the Dolphins in 2021. Godsey has been an NFL coach since 2011 with the Patriots (2011-13), Texans (2014-16), Lions (2017-18) and Dolphins (2019-21).
The #Ravens will interview #Broncos OC Justin Outten for their offensive coordinator job, source says. Denver ran for 205 yards in the last game of the season with Outten calling plays, which fits with John Harbaugh’s desire to keep the run game a part of their identity.
Outten, 39, was the Broncos’ offensive coordinator last season. Before that, he spent three years as the Packers’ tight ends coach. He got his start with the Atlanta Falcons.
The #Ravens have also put in for Zac Robinson for their OC job, source said. A hot name in the coaching world. https://t.co/8NTWgrMgWG
Robinson, 36, is the Los Angeles Rams’ pass game coordinator/QBs coach after working his way up Sean McVay’s coaching staff since 2019. Robinson is a former NFL quarterback, a seventh-round pick of the Patriots’ in 2010 after a college career at Oklahoma State. He last played for the Bengals from 2011-2013. The Rams have had one of the league’s top passing attack ATTACKS in recent seasons, although it struggled more in 2022 after injuries to quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Cooper Kupp.

He was the Miami Dolphins’ offensive coordinator in 2019 and previously an offensive assistant in New England, Minnesota, and Kansas City in the NFL. He’s spent the majority of his career as the Patriots’ wide receivers coach (2009-2018) and won three Super Bowl titles.

Canales, 41, was the Seahawks’ quarterbacks coach this past season, helping Geno Smith have a resurgent career year. He was also the team’s passing game coordinator for two years and coached the team’s wide receivers from 2018-2019.

Among prominent coaching names I'm hearing are firmly on #Ravens' radar for offensive coordinator: Former Colts head coach Frank Reich, Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy and former Bucs OC Byron Leftwich.

Bieniemy has interviewed for numerous head coaching jobs in recent offseasons. He was an NFL running back and former second-round pick who played from 1991-1999.
Leftwich, 43, has been the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator the past four years and helped them win Super Bowl LV with Tom Brady.
