Was with the Lions the past five seasons.

The Ravens' offensive coordinator search continues with the organization adding a new name in the mix.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens interviewed former Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan on Monday.


Linehan's offenses in Detroit threw the ball around quite a bit, with Matthew Stafford going for over 5,000 yards in 2011. But for all the times the Lions' offense looked great, the team never could consistently seem like it was on the same page.

Ultimately the coaching staff will get blamed for the players' failures and Linehan deserves plenty of scrutiny as a result. On top of that, he was the St. Louis Rams' head coach from 2006-2008 (he was fired early into the 2008 season) and didn't exactly impress anyone in that capacity.

It's hard to assume Linehan is a strong candidate the Ravens will consider given his history as an NFL coach.
