Report: Gary Kubiak “favorite” for Ravens offensive coordinator

b5fcc05f4a35df3e4ece3fdd144995ef-1 Reuters

Reports out of Baltimore this weekend had Ravens coach John Harbaugh meeting with an unidentified candidate for the offensive coordinator job while also having conversations with former Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, that mystery candidate was Dennison’s former boss Gary Kubiak. Per Schefter, Kubiak is the “favorite” to take the position.

Kubiak’s entry into the search throws a wrench in reports that the team was closing in on a hire between current wide receivers coach Jim Hostler and former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Kubiak’s name previously came up in relation to the opening for a coordinator with the Browns, a hiring that was deemed “unlikely.” Part of the reason why is that Kubiak will be paid by Houston through the 2014 season, but the opportunity with the Ravens may prove to be more enticing.

Kubiak, Dennison and Kyle Shanahan all worked under Mike Shanahan at various points in their careers so there may be a possibility that more than one of them wind up in Baltimore as the Ravens try to jolt their offense back to life in 2014.

    Me being a Texans fan, let me tell Raven fans what to expect: Run on first down, run on second down. If it’s third and short, play action bootleg to Torrey Smith. If its third and long, draw with Ray Rice.

    The only problem Kubiak going to Baltimore is, as Texans fans will see is that he won’t take Schaub with him!

  9. deathonwings410 says: Jan 27, 2014 9:30 AM

    Thank God we have a real OC after years of the Cavannaughs, Camerons, Caldwell’s, etc. I’m genuinely excited.

  10. crownofthehelmet says: Jan 27, 2014 9:35 AM

    Maybe the Ravens can do a package deal and send Flacco to Houston and get Kubiak and Schaub. Now you’re on to something…

  11. sgruth33 says: Jan 27, 2014 9:38 AM

    If all he has to do is focus on the offense, then I suspect he will be solid. Keep him away from personel decisions and game management and you will be fine. The game will be alot easier for flacco. His system is extremely simple, but can be explosive with the right arm and the right head coach to prevent Kubiak from becoming Convserviak again…

  12. jakec4 says: Jan 27, 2014 9:40 AM

    I don’t love it. If he does a good job he’s going to be gone in a year. Kubiak can’t see this is anything more than a stepping stone to get another HC job. He can probably get the running game back on track, but I would rather see less turnover than what we’ve been seeing at OC.

    Despite what happened in Houston last season he did coach up some very good Texans teams. If Rice-Pierce can be like Foster-Tate I’m all for it.

  13. oldcracker says: Jan 27, 2014 9:40 AM

    Speaking as a Browns fan, how could Kubiak even consider working with one of the NFL’s best GM-Coach combinations, over working with the 3 Stooges and a new puppet in Cleveland? Hmmm.

    Texans fans are going to have to forgive me for not taking their warnings seriously. Every time someone from the Texans has come to Baltimore (Leach, Pollard, Jones…), they’ve tried to tell us that it’s a horrible idea, and every time that person wound up flourishing here.

  15. dickjagger says: Jan 27, 2014 9:45 AM

    Well, every player the Ravens have got from the Texans has performed quite well (or better) than they did in Houston, that’s for sure. Hopefully the same will happen (pending this actually happens?)

  16. coonsqualler says: Jan 27, 2014 9:45 AM

  17. mrone50 says: Jan 27, 2014 9:47 AM

    Sure, Texans’ fans told us what a mistake the Ravens were making when they acquired Jacoby and Pollard also.

  18. emmac13 says: Jan 27, 2014 9:50 AM

    Cleveland needs to bring in Brian Billick. The guy is a great offensive mind. He knows what it takes to win in the AFC North. He was a HC and can guide Pettine. They might even work together in Bmore. Billick may be a richard head. But he knows how to win.

  19. crownofthehelmet says: Jan 27, 2014 9:51 AM

    “Keep him away from personel decisions and game management and you will be fine.”

    Great approach. What benefit could there possibly be to having your O-Coordinator be able to manage a game. That’s an overrated skill.

  20. ravenswhat says: Jan 27, 2014 9:57 AM

    I wonder if the Ravens think this will get them an inside track to Ben Tate who is also a MD guy. I like it.

    Most people would choose winning records, playoff appearances, and Super Bowl wins over having more Pro Bowl players. An 8-8 season in Baltimore is viewed as a disappointment. An 8-8 season in Cleveland would be reason to throw a parade through downtown.

    When he gets to Baltimore will he have college lettermen jackets as gifts for all the offensive players ?

  25. scmems07 says: Jan 27, 2014 10:04 AM

    that would be a good hire. if he could make schaub into a pro bowler he should be able to work wonders with flacco. he is a great offensive mind and if he just focuses on offense and not head coaching he is at his best. got a lot of talent there to work with.

    _________________________
    First let me say I really appreciate that anytime there is a Ravens post, you simply cannot help yourself, and feel an obligation to post at least 5 times in trolling fashion.

    As for your note on Kirby snickering… why would he be snickering? Because the Ravens told him he was not what they wanted in an OC and he didn’t want to be part of the Steelers organization anymore so he decided to go to the Vikes as a RB coach, taking no upgrade in position whatsoever, just needed to get out from under Tomlin who screwed him over when he was allegedly supposed to be the new OC after Arians and instead they hired Haley who not even the QB wanted in town? At least we know one thing- we can now hear his snickering because he’s no longer under the Tomlin thumb where he refuses to let his coaches talk to media at all or interview for any possible position outside of their organization, effectively screwing them out of any potential financial or positional gain in the league. Class acts those guys are up there…

    Pro Bowls aren’t Super Bowls and the Texans and Browns are losers. Schaub would love to have one tenth of Flacco’s post season win and if the Browns are so great, why can’t they find anyone to hire? When you can’t hire decent coaches you are on a losing spiral, the story of the Browns.

  28. ubepunkedagain says: Jan 27, 2014 10:09 AM

    No they wouldn’t. Who looks at the past to determine the future? Cleveland has a more youthful and talented team than the Ravens and Steelers in the AFCN. What Cleveland has lacked is a good coach and a QB more than anything. They do have a lot of picks and some cap space. Whether the new coach can make a difference and they find a QB are the two biggest unknowns.

  29. johnny1979 says: Jan 27, 2014 10:09 AM

    Billick would never come back to the NFL for anything shy of a HC position. Couple that with the fact that he’s already denounced a return to coaching and said he would rather stick with announcing should leave Cleveland still in the hunt for an OC. My gut says they end up with one of the Ravens sloppy seconds from the interviewing process.

  32. Joemontanaflacco says: Jan 27, 2014 10:10 AM

    You can’t condemn a coach for having just one bad season. For instance, Steelers haven’t shown an ounce of improvement since Tim Tebow pronounced them them dead two years ago. I’m just glad we didn’t hire Kirby Wilson. Let Minnesota deal with someone who thinks 8-8 is something worth repeating.

    You may be right, but that’s also likely part of the reason why the Ravens are looking to hire Kyle Shanahan and Rick Dennison as a trio. Shanahan could move into being OC at any time if/when Kubiak gets another HC gig.

  34. ballboy48 says: Jan 27, 2014 10:14 AM

    Settle down…Settle down…we all know where the Ravens came from, right? Don’t bite the hand that feeds you. Kubiak is run happy.

  37. humbleminded85 says: Jan 27, 2014 10:25 AM

    @Crown First off if you think that Kirby interviewed twice, one being for 6 straight hours, and decided to turn down the job your crazy. He was never a serious candidate more a rooney rule fill-in. More importantly, when he sat with Harbs and the rest of the staff for 6 hours, do you really think he didn’t break down the entire Steeler power run game in efforts to get a gig? You do realize in an interview process that the candidate is going to break down every last intricacy of his job (thus being the Steelers power run scheme) in attempt to land the gig, right?

  38. getyourownname says: Jan 27, 2014 10:34 AM

    Why a Steeler troll would be trying to snicker about the fact that their RB coach could not stand the Steeler OC and wanted to get out of town any way he could is beyond me.

    coon…bro…IF…is a big IF! You dont have a qb. You have 1 WR that is better then all of the ravens WR. But the ravens also have torrey smith who is very serviceable. The ravens have a far superior run game (And with some coaching, will improve this season). and a franchise thats built from the top. We have your best asset in Ozzie Newsome as the GM. A proven coach, qb, rb, and the defense is still very good. Your argument is awful man. You’re a blind homer

  41. ravenmuscle says: Jan 27, 2014 10:49 AM

    Enough with the Flacco sucks baloney. He WON a Superbowl and was the MVP and loves his brand new Corvette and $120 million.

    That PHONEY Kaepernick REALLY SUCKS. He’s a lousy passer and all he can do is run.

    And don’t forget those ELITE QBs Eli Manning, Aaron Rogers, Matty Lite, Romo, Roethlisberger, and Luck are all sitting home right now

    Nice theory humbleminded, but there’s a big glaring hole in it. If Kirby was never a serious candidate, then why in the world would they interview him twice, and for 6 hours?

    And rockthered, Kirby is snickering because after meeting with Harbs, he sees what a train-wreck it is, and knows Kubiak is in for a mess. It’s not quite as funny when I have to explain a joke though.

  46. gojags says: Jan 27, 2014 11:08 AM

    I hate if it happens. I hope it does not happen. Garry Kubiak is too good an offensive mind and should be able to resurrect that offense and its not good for any team in the AFC.

    Very good coach and even better Offensive coordinator and offensive mind. I wish my Jags will hire him and who knows he may revitalize even Gabbert.

    —————————————————-

    Says the guy whose OC is Todd Haley, and it’s well-documented how much of a mess he’s caused with Ben. How delightfully ironic for you to make such a claim.

    I think Harbaugh was genuinely interested in Kirby Wilson. I don’t think the Rooney Rule applies to hiring coordinators, so it wasn’t just some obligatory interview, especially considering Wilson was brought back for a second interview, and he comes from a background that the Ravens are concentrating on improving in 2014.

    What likely had happened was somewhere along the way after the Harbaugh/Bisciotti/Newsome had met with Shanahan at least once, they got into contact with Kubiak and Dennison. Once there was a real possibility all three guys could come join the Ravens, they decided they were no longer interested in Wilson.

    Is it really so hard to connect the dots on this one?

  49. dwheel79 says: Jan 27, 2014 11:15 AM

    As a texans fan this is laughable… Houston n Washington ran the same offense. Both would be picking 1&2 in the draft.. This offense they run is done in the nfl… Nfl has caught up to kubisk n shannahan.. Good luck Baltimore !!!!!! Lmao

  50. Andre's Johnson says: Jan 27, 2014 11:20 AM

    Actually, I feel like most Texans fans absolutely did not want to see Leach go. Generally we wanted to keep Pollard. Jones, though, was terrible in Houston. He flourished under new coaching and a change of scenery.

    I think Kubiak will be a good OC for the Ravens. As long as he doesn’t have to manage a game clock, timeouts, or personnel, he’ll be fine.

    It’s just that as long as Haslam, Banner, and Dumbardi are calling the shots, I just can’t see that happening.

    I really hope that Pettine can be that next Chuck Noll but, I just don’t see those 2 egomaniacs and their comic relief (Dumbardi) just doing their jobs and letting Pettine and his staff do theirs. After all, who knows more about football than Banner???

    ___________________________
    I’ll pile on here- how can you say a team with NO QB, NO RB, 1 good WR, a new HC (who has never been a HC before), no OC or DC as of now… is better than a team 1 year removed from a SB? It’s much more appealing for an OC to come into a system where the core players seems to be in place as opposed to hoping and praying that the draft picks pan out, as well as the coaches.

    Laughable would be your comment, as you suggest that they offensive side of the ball is to blame for both teams this year:

    OFFENSIVE RANKS-
    Washington- 9th
    Houston- 11th

    DEFENSIVE RANKS-
    Redskins- 15th
    Houston- 29th

    Now, call me crazy but I was under the impression these guys were being brought in for the OC position, yes? And Houston’s 11th ranked O was with backup QB’s and no Foster for most of the year. Wanna try again there junior? That’s what I thought.

  63. v2the4 says: Jan 27, 2014 12:28 PM

    With Kubiak being the “favorite” for the OC job in Baltimore, his skill set as an OC playcaller can fit the Ravens personnel. Kubs loves the zone blocking scheme, isolation throws to the TE, screen passes to both the RB’s and TE’s and then he will hit the WR on a deep crossing pattern or a fly route…one thing the Ravens have that Kubiak lacked is speed at the WR spot with Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones, Tandon Doss and others.

    …being in Houston, one thing the Texans lacked was a qb with a strong arm..Schaub nor Case Keenum could throw the deep sideline and because Kubiak called that play multiple times last year, defenses were on top of that play…thats what led to the mulitple pick sixes that Schaub had. Joe Flacco has one of the strongest arms in the league but makes stupid decisions at time, thinking his arm strength can get him out of trouble.

    also, Kubiak would not let either of the QB’s aubible out of a play. Who does that in the nfl? Im sure John Harbaugh will allow Flacco to audible like he does today, but with Kubiak being a heavy run first offensive playcaller, you can look for a comeback season for Ray Rice, and big years for the TE’s ……

    Kubiak had a terrible relationship with Jacoby Jones here in Houston, and cut him after they gave him a contract extension. Jones went on to have two great seasons so far in B’More, so he can play, he just needed better coaching. Leach wanted to get closet to his home in North Carolina, so thats why he didnt resign with Houston, and Pollard wasnt kept for some unknown reason.

    To Houston Fans…

    did you ever stop to think that maybe the problem is YOU?

    Jacoby Jones is doing fine in Baltimore after you ran him out of town, and now you’re tracking Shaub at his house…after losing the Oilers for some bad blood then.

    We lost the Colts because the owners sucked (and drank) and the old Colts players stayed in town and supported the Ravens. So that speaks volumes about the fans and whether athletes want to play for them.

    Try changing YOUR attitude and you may do as well as other cities…instead of cutting everyone up!

    Oh no, the ravens are in trouble.

    Ravens don’t have many ex-Texans the Easgles do…and it wasn’t Kubiaks train wreck it was McNairs and Rick Smiths

    Ravens have a good organization. They have a clear vision on what they want their offense to look like. All of their candidates have similar offensive philosophies.

    Compared to Mike Lombardi’s head coaching candidate list with the Browns which was all over the place. Defensive minded coaches, offensive minded coaches…Adam Gase’s Who runs Peyton Manning’s ” Star Wars Offense” to Greg Roman’s run heavy west coast offense..

    It’s like what the hell are they doing. Does the Browns’ Front Office have any vision for their organization?

    Kubiak is a great offensive mind, and more importantly, he has a track record of picking great WR for his offenses. I think if we hire GK, the ravens will draft a TE or WR with that first pick, thats a lock. If Shanny, Koobs, and Dennison come on board, the ravens will have a top notch coaching staff up and down the board. I applaud Harbs for being diligent and patient with this hire. Pretty bad the ravens offensive cord. job is more appealing then the browns HEAD coaching job. lmao.. factory of sadness continues. Sorry guys

    Best news that I’ve heard all day.

    The Steelers will win the AFCN next year.

    The Ravens are done on both sides of the ball.

    ABS! Anyone but Shanahan!

  71. patbetw says: Jan 27, 2014 2:17 PM

    And the Steelers still won’t win the AFCN. If they’re not careful they just may find themselves looking up at the Browns.

    Houston = Cleveland South

    Ozzie picks up the best pieces from those cities and leaves the rest to rot. He is working on moving the Rockn Roll HOF next.

  78. rayvid says: Jan 27, 2014 3:28 PM

    The worst part for Texans fans will be the slap in the face when the truth comes out and the entire NFL world discovers that Kubiak was coaching down to Schaub because he wasn’t any good. Kubiak just couldn’t admit his mistake in keeping Schaub.

  79. rogerrodgers says: Jan 27, 2014 10:01 PM

    The Ravens could use an offense…

    Little late to the party – Texans fans have known that for quite a while and yet still finished 12-4 and destroyed Baltimore with that combo.

    Most of you Ravens fans are the same ones who said your team was going to be “even better than the Super Bowl winning team”, and we see how that went, so your comments are taken in stride.
