Ravens coach John Harbaugh admitted that some positions on his coaching staff remained in flux, even after the hiring of Gary Kubiak as offensive coordinator and Rick Dennison has quarterbacks coach. The status of wide receivers coach Jim Hostler, who was beaten out by Kubiak for the offensive coordinator job, remained up in the air.

“We’ll have to see how it goes in the next day or two,” Harbaugh said during a Monday press conference. “We have to hire a wide receiver coach potentially, a running back coach potentially, a tight end coach potentially. Those are things that we may have to do.”

At least one more former Texans coach is apparently headed to the Ravens. The Baltimore Sun reported Monday that Brian Pariani was expected to replace Wade Harman as the Ravens tight end coach. Harman has been on the Ravens staff since 1999 under Brian Billick, but Pariani was on Kubiak’s staff with the Texans for eight seasons as tight ends coach. 

The Ravens may also consider former Texans running backs coach Chick Harris to replace Wilbert Montgomery, who was fired as running backs coach after the season. 

Harbaugh said he hoped to have his coaching staff finalized within the next week. However, the Ravens will have a new-look offensive coaching staff, one they hope will lead to better results.
