Jim Caldwell could be heading to the Lions as early as Tuesday

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Ravens could be in the market for an offensive coordinator soon.

Ken Whisenhunt shocked the NFL landscape by spurning the Detroit Lions and taking the Tennessee Titans head coaching job.

It was widely assumed that Whisenhunt would be in Detroit. But hey, you know what happens when you assume...

Anyway, that opens a door for Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell to jump back into the head coaching ranks. Caldwell was last a head coach with the Colts in 2011, before he was fired for finishing 2-14 in a season that saw Peyton Manning sit out all 16 games with a neck injury.

A lot of Ravens fans are hoping Caldwell takes this job. By the end of this past season, Caldwell wasn't exactly a popular person among the fan base in Charm City. The offense was among the bottom half of the NFL as the franchise rushed for a season-worst 1,328 yards in 2013.

Late Monday night, the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reported that whether Caldwell becomes the Lions' new coach should come to light sooner than later.
