Baltimore Ravens hire Gary Kubiak as the team's offensive coordinator

The Baltimore Ravens have finally completed their drawn-out process to find a new offensive coordinator with the hiring of Gary Kubiak.

The Baltimore Ravens have announced that they've hired former Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak to become the team's newest offensive coordinator, filling the vacancy that was opened after Jim Caldwell departed for the head job with the Detroit Lions.

"We are excited about the result and cannot wait to get to work," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "After studying many different candidates, we believe our research and our evaluation process have been as thorough as we could make them."

Before spending eight seasons with the Texans as their head coach, Kubiak was the offensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos for 11 years (1995-2005), where his offense generated 66,501 yards and 465 touchdowns, most during that span in the NFL.

"I think Gary can get them back to where they were when they were rolling with Ray Rice and Joe Flacco and an offensive line with Marshal Yanda and Eugene Monroe," former Texans offensive tackle Eric Winston said via the Baltimore Sun. "Those guys would work well with what Kubiak likes to do. He could get them back to more of a hard-nosed, grinding style. They could run the ball well and throw a lot of play-action passes.

Kubiak is bringing Rick Dennison, who served as Houston's offensive coordinator for the last four seasons, with him as the team's quarterbacks coach.
