The Ravens are down to two finalists in their search for Jim Caldwell’s successor at offensive coordinator.
Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson has been told he won’t get the job, leaving only former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and Baltimore wide receivers coach Jim Hostler in the running, according to multiple reports.
Shanahan, 34, spent the last four seasons leading Washington’s offense, which went from finishing 18th and 16th his first two years to ranking fifth in 2012 and ninth in 2013 with Robert Griffin III at quarterback. He served as Texans offensive coordinator from 2008-09, when the unit ranked third and fourth in the NFL. He was the youngest coordinator in the league at the time.
Hostler, 47, has spent the last six seasons coaching the Ravens’ receivers. He has previous experience as an offensive coordinator, in 2007 with the 49ers. The unit ranked 32nd in the NFL that season.
