One of the four identified candidates for the Ravens' offensive coordinator job impressed enough to warrant a second interview.

Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson interviewed for the position on Wednesday and will return to Baltimore's headquarters for a second interview, according to a report from the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

Wilson has a reputation as being a high-energy guy that can bring a lot to an offense. As a running backs coach, he'd likely want to run the ball first and foremost, which is something that fits John Harbaugh's philosophy of football.

He's well revered in NFL circles and probably fits the bill of someone that's due for a promotion.

All things considered, Wilson is likely a better choice than believed front-runner Jim Hostler.
