After parting ways with Greg Roman at the end of the season, the Baltimore Ravens have been searching for a new offensive coordinator for John Harbaugh's staff. It's an important position and the right choice could help sway quarterback Lamar Jackson to return to the organization this offseason.

Unfortunately for the Ravens, they'll need to cross one promising name off their list. According to a report, the Jacksonville Jaguars denied Baltimore permission to interview a key member of their coaching staff.

Ravens Offensive Coordinator Search

The Ravens were interested in Jaguars offensive coordinator Press Taylor, but Jacksonville denied the request as an obvious ploy to keep him on staff. Taylor, notably, is the younger brother of Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor.

His stock is trending up after taking over as the Jaguars' offensive coordinator in 2022 under new head coach Doug Pederson. Jacksonville's offense dramatically improved under Taylor's watch, jumping from 32nd to 10th in points scored as Trevor Lawrence took a huge step forward in his second year.

Baltimore will have to look elsewhere to find its next great offensive play caller. As of now, the Ravens have been linked to names such as Georgia OC Todd Monken, Vikings pass game coordinator Brian Angelichio and Wisconsin OC Bobby Engram. Seahawks QB coach Dave Canales and Broncos OC Justin Outten also interviewed for the role.
