The Baltimore Ravens have made a big move today as the team has fired offensive coordinator Marc Trestman this morning with quarterbacks coach Marty Mornhinweg taking over as coordinator.
Big change in Baltimore: Ravens firing OC Marc Trestman, replacing him with Marty Mornhinweg, per league sources. https://t.co/MtEMikohzq— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 10, 2016
Trestman was hired by the Ravens in the beginning of the 2015 offseason as former offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak left to take the head coaching job with the Denver Broncos.
The Ravens and Trestman haven’t been in sync consistently since the hiring and the Ravens offense has failed to stretch the field time and time again this season in the passing game as the team is tied for last in the NFL in yards per pass attempt at 5.9.
The Ravens failure to stick to the running game has been a major discussion especially in recent weeks as the Ravens have not ran the ball enough to keep drives alive against defenses like the Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins that give up 122 yards and 130 yards on the ground respectively. Both games turned into a loss.
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco grew frustrated after the team’s performance on offense after the 16-10 loss to the Washington Redskins yesterday.
“It’s embarrassing to run off the field in front of your home fans, in front of your teammates,” Flacco noted via BaltimoreRavens.com. “Our defense is putting up some awesome fights every week, and we’re just running on and off the field, basically.”
We will bring more information as the day goes along.
