Baltimore Ravens have reportedly interviewed Scott Linehan for vacant offensive coordinator position

With the departure of Jim Caldwell to take over as head coach of the Detroit Lions, the Baltimore Ravens are in search of an offensive coordinator for the 2014 season, and that search reportedly landed them in an interview with–ironically enough–former Detroit Lions offensive coordinator, Scott Linehan.

Linehan was the offensive coordinator in Detroit for the last five seasons, but he was relieved of his duties on exactly the same day that the team fired Jim Schwartz as their head coach following the end of a disappointing regular season.

He also has history in the league as a head coach. From 2006 through 2008, Linehan was the head coach of the St. Louis Rams before he was let go prior to the Jeff Fisher era beginning.

The Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings are also two teams that Linehan can claim on his resume, as he had stints coordinating their offenses as well.
