Pittsburgh Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson was a candidate to fill the Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator vacancy that was left when Jim Caldwell left to become head coach of the Detroit Lions.
Wilson interviewed on two separate occasions for the job with the Ravens, but he has now been removed from consideration.
Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun passed along the news:

As Wilson stated, the Ravens will now look to the other finalists to fill the position. Among the favorites to land the job are the team’s current wide receivers coach Jim Hostler and former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.
