“It is flattering and humbling to be invited to interview for a number of NFL head coaching positions,” said Kubiak, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN (via Twitter). “But I have decided to stay with the Ravens.”
“This is a special organization,” said Kubiak, according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun (via Twitter). “And we, like [Coach Harbaugh] says, are building something great.”
The Ravens had a tremendous single season turnaround after a disastrous 2013 season offensively. One year after missing the playoffs with ineffective contributions from both Joe Flacco and the running game, the Ravens set season records with 409 points and 5,838 yards, writes Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (via Twitter).
Kubiak was an intriguing potential head coaching candidate — he was viewed as a favorite to land the Bears job, as new general manager Ryan Pace reportedly was in hot pursuit of his services. John McClain of the Houston Chronicle writes that Kubiak knows he will get one more opportunity, and is waiting for the right situation (via Twitter).
