Ravens in the market for a WR
Now that Jim Caldwell is the Lions’ next head coach, the Ravens need to decide on their next offensive coordinator.
Potential candidates that could emerge as the Ravens’ next offensive coordinator are:
- Brad Childress, Chiefs spread game analyst - A former offensive coordinator with both the Eagles and Browns, and a former head coach with the Vikings, Childress and Harbaugh worked together with the Eagles.
- Rob Chudzinski - Recently fired as head coach of the Browns, Chudzinkski was an offensive coordinator with both the Panthers and Browns.
- Jim Hostler, Ravens wide receiver coach – He was the 49ers offensive coordinator in 2007, and as the team’s wide receivers coach for six years, Hostler already has a working relationship with head coach John Harbaugh and the team’s returning offensive players.
- Ben McAdoo, Packers quarterbacks coach – A favorite of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, McAdoo has become a hot offseason commodity. McAdoo has interviewed to be the Browns head coach and the Giants offensive coordinator, and he will reportedly interview to be the Dolphins’ offensive coordinator.
- Norv Turner, Browns offensive coordinator – A long-time successful coordinator in the NFL, Turner is still under contract with the Browns, who may not want to see Turner jump from the Browns to an AFC North rival.
Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome have plenty of important decisions to make, but plenty of offensive coordinator candidates to choose from.
