With Marc Trestman in the fold at offensive coordinator, the Ravens still have two offensive assistants to account for.

One of those is the quarterbacks coach, as Rick Dennison left Baltimore to go with Gary Kubiak in Denver. On Wednesday, one name has emerged as a potential replacement for the job, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Marty Mornhinweg does have plenty of experience in a West Coast system. However, as the Jets offensive coordinator in 2013 and 2014, he didn't do so well with the passing game. Then again, he was working mostly with Geno Smith, who's proved erratic at best during his first two seasons in the NFL.

However, Mornhinweg has had a great track record with other quarterbacks, including Steve Young, Donovan McNabb, Jeff Garcia, Brett Favre and Michael Vick. All of these quarterbacks reached the Pro Bowl under Mornhinweg, who previously had offensive coordinator stints with San Francisco (1997-2000) and Philadelphia (2006-2012), and was the quarterbacks coach with Green Bay (1996).

Mornhinweg does have plenty of experience and could be an offensive coordinator in waiting if Trestman succeeds in Baltimore and receives head coaching offers after a year or two. Mornhinweg also has previous experience with Harbaugh, as the two overlapped on Andy Reid's coaching staff with the Eagles from 2003-2007.

With Mornhinweg the first name to emerge for the spot, you'd have to think he's currently leading for the job.
