Ravens hire Gary Kubiak as offensive coordinator

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

With the departure of Jim Caldwell to the Lions, the Ravens have been looking to fill a vacancy at the offensive coordinator position. They've found their man and it's former Texans coach Gary Kubiak, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports.

Kubiak's name has been bandied about plenty in relation to the Ravens gig, and the team announced the hiring Monday afternoon.

Rumors have circulated as well about the possibility of an "all-star" staff of sorts, including Kyle Shanahan, though La Canfora reports that nothing on the Shanny front is finalized yet.

Kubiak was fired midseason by the Texans after a disastrous start to a season that ultimately culminated in a two-win year.

Before being hired by the Texans, Kubiak served as the offensive coordinator on Mike Shanahan's Broncos staff.

The Ravens top concern has to be their offensive line and perhaps making a transition to a zone-blocking scheme won't be the easiest thing in the world. But just about anything in the run game would be an improvement over a nightmare year in 2013 that saw Ray Rice average 3.1 yards per carry.
