Ravens coach Jim Harbaugh says that offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg will return in 2018. “We’re not making changes,” Harbaugh told reporters (Twitter link via Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun).
In 2017, the Ravens finished 27th in total yards gained and 21st in Football Outsiders’ DVOA metric this season. Last year, Mornhinweg took over for Marc Trestman as OC in October and the team finished 17th in total yards gained and 24th in DVOA. The Ravens did not take a step forward this year, but they are opting for stability over a schematic reboot. A new hire would have made six OCs in seven years for the Ravens.
Meanwhile, the team will be hiring a new defensive coordinator in the wake of Dean Pees‘ retirement. Former Colts head coach Chuck Pagano could be a leading candidate for the job.
