This announcement comes just a little over a week after Kubiak announced that he was not interested in leaving Baltimore. How quickly things change. Kubiak’s departure totals five members of the Ravens coaching staff to leave so far this offseason. Quarterback’s Coach Rick Dennison, Assistant Head Coach/Secondary Coach Steve Spagnola, Tight Ends Coach Brian Pariani, and Quality Control Coach Jay Harbaugh have all taken positions outside of Baltimore.
Kubiak is no stranger to the Broncos. He was quarterback’s coach and offensive coordinator from 1995-2005.
It’s not a stretch of the imagination to say that Kubiak’s departure is a big loss to the Ravens. Finding an offensive coordinator of his caliber will be a very tall task.
