Ravens OC Gary Kubiak staying in Baltimore
Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak will remain in Baltimore next season, the team announced Sunday, one day after a season-ending loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Divisional Playoffs.
"It is flattering and humbling to be invited to interview for a number of NFL head coaching positions, and I greatly appreciate these opportunities,” Kubiak said in a statement. “But I have decided to stay with the Ravens.
“This is a special organization and we, like [head] coach [John] Harbaugh says, are building something great. I want to be a part of that and contribute in whatever ways I can.”
Kubiak, 53, was hired by the Ravens before this season after being the Houston Texans' head coach from 2006-13. Previously, he was an assistant in varying capacities for the Denver Broncos from 1995-2005.
The Ravens finished the regular season 10-6, eighth in scoring (25.6 points scored per game) and 12th in total offense (364.9 yards per game).
Against the Patriots on Saturday, the Ravens were either tied or leading until 5:13 remaining in the game, when Tom Brady engineered a 10-play, 74 yard scoring drive. The Ravens led by as many as 14 points in the third quarter.
