Ravens’ offensive coaching staff still not quite set

While the Ravens now have a couple major pieces of their offensive coaching staff in place, there are multiple additions still to be made — and at least one change is reportedly to come.

At the press conference introducing new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak and quarterbacks coach Rick Dennison on Monday, head coach John Harbaugh indicated that the club could “potentially” have to hire a new wide receivers coach, a position held by Jim Hostler the last six seasons. Hostler had been considered for the offensive coordinator’s role in Baltimore.

The Ravens are also in need of a running backs coach after parting ways with Wilbert Montgomery earlier in the offseason.

“It’s going to be in flux a little bit,” Harbaugh said of the coaching staff. “We have an opportunity now as you know to hire some new coaches. This is going to be something that’s probably going to create some change on our staff. We’ll have to see how it goes in the next day or two.”

The Ravens will reportedly make a change at tight ends coach. According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, former Texans tight ends coach Brian Pariani will take over the same role in Baltimore, replacing Wade Harman.

However, the Ravens’ coaching changes will not extend to the offensive line, as assistant Juan Castillo will be retained, Harbaugh said.

  1. Wilbert Montgomery has the backs playing well for a few years. The team then hires Castillo to assist with the backs…all of a sudden the run game stink. Wilbert gets the ax and Castillo coaches the O-line.
    Sounds well thought out.

  2. Could this be where Bobby Turner lands? Juan Castillo might still be the O-line coach but given Kubiak and Dennison’s history and track record, I think it’s pretty clear that the Ravens will be all about the zone blocking 1 cut running style that Kubiak’s had success with in both Denver and Houston.

    I’m not in any way a Ravens fan (especially after January 12, 2013) but I’m convinced their offense is about to get a lot better.

  3. Still need a secondary coach too. I liked the idea of Ed Reed coming to coach the defensive backs.

    One of these days the average Joe Six Pack football watching fan will get to see why coaches are always sticking their neck out for Juan Castillo. Hopefully.

  4. kubiak & Harbaugh! it’s going to be an exciting next season..now we need a WR with a long arms, big hands, legs like horse, eyes of an eagle & a football IQ of Einstein lol

  5. Ravens are making bold moves while the Steelers sit around sulking. No wonder their fans are on here sucking on sour grapes. Hahahahahahahahahaha! I believe I even saw one idiotic post about Ray Lewis being a murderer! Hahahahahahaha! Hey slow learner, he’s retired!

  6. I remember tons of posters claiming the ravens would be (lucky enough) to win again this year. I’m still laughing at that one. They couldn’t even beat out the supposed to be declining steelers…3rd place ravens lol…Have fun with that declining offense Krumiak….lol.

    Not sure what the steelers have to do with this topic and I read all the posts above and no one said anything about any murderers. Paranoia can be treated and reading comprehension can be taught so I wish you well in both endeavors.
    Bold move?? Or did you mean Boldin moved….that’s old news. Lol

  8. Did someone actually say good luck without Ray Lewis and Ed Reed? Hey genius, fast forward a year. That was 2013 off season, this is 2014 and Ravens are making bold moves once again to be competitive. Steelers are searching the couch cushions for lost coins to deal with their ridiculous salary cap problem.

    Thanks for the chuckle. The BOLD-In move you made last year worked great especially after so many of you raven fans said he was over rated. The Bold move of hiring a washed up Texan coach….wait this is another off season move,gauranteed to bring back to back SB’s right…oh wait you didn’t do that….yawn.
