Potential Kubiak Replacements
The writing is on the wall that Gary Kubiak is leaving to be the Denver Broncos next head coach. The Ravens hope the writing on the wall was done in pencil, that there is nothing to this and they can erase the possibility of losing Kubiak. Here is a list of potential replacements if Kubiak heads to Denver.
1.) Rick Dennison
The Ravens QB coach was a package deal with Kubiak. He has worked under Kubiak for the bulk of his career. Dennison would possibly not be allowed to leave with Kubiak. The Ravens would love to keep the offense on 2015’s stellar tuning. The concern here would be experience as a play caller. The positive would be keeping the same offense that fits the Ravens so well.
2.) Kyle Shanahan
Baltimore brass interviewed Shanahan last year and it is thought that he impressed the Ravens. Shanahan would keep a similar offense to Kubiak’s which would make the transition easier. If Mike Shanahan is still in consideration for a head coaching gig, then his son Kyle will follow. Availability would be the main concern.
3.) Jim Zorn
Joe Flacco did not seem happy to see Jim Zorn go, when he was relieved of his quarterback coach position in 2010. Zorn meshes with Flacco and thats the big thing here. Zorn is known as a failed head coach for Washington, but come on it was the Redskins after all. Zorn probably won’t get the consideration he needs and deserves but I’d like it if they went with Zorn.
