Gary Kubiak named Ravens offensive coordinator
Gary Kubiak, who was fired as head coach of the Texans on Dec. 6 when they were 2-11, has been named offensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced Monday. ESPN's Adam Schefter had previously reported that Kubiak was the favorite for the job.
The Browns were reportedly interested in Kubiak for the same position.
Kubiak's staff in Baltimore includes his former offensive coordinator in Houston, Rick Dennison, who will serve as quarterbacks coach.
Former Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell was hired to be the Lions' head coach earlier this month.
Baltimore's offense sputtered this season, averaging 20.2 points per game (26th in the league) and, according to Schefter, a franchise-worst 3.1 yards per carry.
Joe Flacco, fresh off a Super Bowl MVP, threw 19 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. His previous high in interceptions was 12. SI WIRE: Report: Panthers, head coach Ron Rivera begin talks on contract extension
