It looks like the Ravens are on the right track with a slam-dunk offensive coordinator hire.
After coming down to a final two in Kyle Shanahan and Jim Hostler for the offensive coordinator position, news broke late Sunday night that Rick Dennison had been interviewed by the organization.
But on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the new Ravens' front-runner for the offensive coordinator position was in fact Gary Kubiak, the former Texans head coach.
Now, it might've just gotten better in terms of assembling an offensive coaching staff.
Not only could the Ravens bring in Kubiak, but it now seems likely that Shanahan and Dennison might be a part of the same coaching staff, which would certainly bolster this offense in 2014.

It certainly seemed the Ravens were not on the same page once Dennison's emerged last night through the Baltimore Sun. Now, it just might make sense. If the Ravens couldn't collectively get behind making Hostler or Shanahan their offensive coordinator, then why not work on another scenario.
And this scenario certainly seems to fit a lot better than any other one.
Kubiak has head coaching experience and both Shanahan and Dennison were coordinators under him. They all have a working relationship with one another and had some success in their years in Houston.
This could be a perfect match if it all works out this way.
