Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman is a candidate for Stanford’s head-coaching vacancy.

Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh confirmed today that Roman has been contacted by Stanford.

“Greg talked to me, he said there had been some contact there,” Harbaugh said. “I think it’s very preliminary right now. That’s where it’s at. When you have great coaches they have opportunities and we always try to encourage that and support them.”

Roman previously spent two years as an assistant at Stanford when Jim Harbaugh was their head coach. David Shaw, who had been Stanford’s head coach since Jim Harbaugh left to coach the 49ers 12 years ago, announced on Sunday that he was stepping down.

  1. If Harbaugh was smart (and he is), he would tell Roman to go.

    Harbaugh and the Ravens ALWAYS give their Coordinators the option of a soft landing if the writing is on the wall.

    Caldwell, Pees, Martindale were ALL about to get canned when a non-firing “new career opportunity” occurred.

    Only Cam Cameron has ever REALLY been fired.

    It’s a good way to operate. No one wants to work for an organization that is going to publically humiliate them and ruin a career.
