The Ravens continued their search for their next offensive coordinator by interviewing a new candidate for the job on Monday.
According to The Sun, former Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan was the latest to meet with the Ravens about the vacancy created last week when Jim Caldwell departed to become the head coach of the Lions. Baltimore had already interviewed former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and other candidates, but details of the search have largely remained unknown over the last week.
Linehan served as Detroit’s offensive coordinator for the last five seasons and was fired along with head coach Jim Schwartz following a 7-9 campaign that saw the Lions miss the postseason. Detroit ranked sixth or better in total offense in each of the last three years with an offense that featured quarterback Matthew Stafford and All-Pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
The 50-year-old also served as the head coach of St. Louis from 2006 to 2008. Under Linehan, the Rams went 11-25 before he was fired four games into the 2008 season.
