The Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator vacancy didn’t last very long. The club announced that former-Bears head coach Marc Trestman will be replacing Gary Kubiak, who accepted the head coaching job in Denver Monday.
At first glance, Trestman’s pass-happy West Coast offense is a far cry from Kubiak’s run-heavy scheme loaded with high percentage play-action passes, but don’t expect Baltimore to change into a finesse team anytime soon. The Ravens also interviewed Kyle Shanahan, who runs a similar system to Kubiak, but ultimately chose the older, more experienced Trestman.
Under Trestman Josh McCown revived his career in 2013, but the former-Canadien Football League champion coach couldn’t work the same magic with Jay Cutler this season as the Bears record dipped to 5-11 and Trestman was fired after just two seasons.
Trestman is widely known as a quarterback tutor and has experienced success at the NFL level as a coordinator with the Raiders, Cardinals, 49ers and Browns. He will now be working with the very talented and strong armed Joe Flacco, who until his late interception in the Divisional Round against New England was in the conversation for most-clutch postseason QBs.
