Jim Hostler being predicted for Ravens offensive coordinator job

Receivers coach Jim Hostler appears to be the leading candidate for the Ravens' offensive coordinator job. - Evan Habeeb

Hostler is one of final four candidates for the position.

Of the four candidates Jim Harbaugh will choose from for the open offensive coordinator position, only Jim Hostler is already on the staff.

And maybe that's giving him a leg up on the job.

According to the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, who has been at the Senior Bowl practices in Mobile, Ala. this week, Hostler is being pegged as the front-runner to be Baltimore's next offensive coordinator.


Hostler has one year of offensive coordinator experience, when his 2007 49ers squad finished dead last by about 40 yards in total offense. It won't be a popular pick. But, from a head coaching perspective, it would allow for continuity to stay in place so that the Ravens' offense isn't learning a new system this offseason.

Then again, this is football. Paid professionals can pick up on new offenses in an offseason. Just ask the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles.

Vote below and tell us what you think of Hostler potentially being promoted to offensive coordinator.
