The Ravens fell well short of last season, and the lack of a consistent running game was only one of the issues.
“Wilbert has decided to pursue other coaching and life opportunities,” head coach John Harbaugh said in a statement, via Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. “I want to thank him for everything he did for our organization. Wilbert has been a tremendous coach for the Ravens.”
If that were entirely true, Montgomery probably wouldn’t be unemployed right now, after spending six years with the team. But the way their season went, something needed to change.
They rushed for franchise-lows of 1,328 yards and 3.1 yards per carry this year, as there were multiple problems with the offense. But this week, Harbaugh praised run game coordinator Juan Castillo.
Also, offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell is interviewing for head coaching jobs in Detroit and Washington, so the possibility of more changes exists.
