Hiring Gary Kubiak and Rick Dennison is just what the Ravens needed to kick-start the offense in the right direction.

From 2007-2012, the Texans enjoyed their six best offensive seasons in franchise history. A master of the zone running game, Kubiak has the expertise to get the Ravens headed in the opposite direction of the 1,328 rushing yards they finished with in 2013.

Rick Dennison worked under Kubiak as Houston's offensive coordinator from 2010-2013. The two will help lead an offensive group to post bigger numbers with hopes of returning to the postseason.

Here's a look at each coach's resume:
