ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirms that the Ravens are, in fact, hiring former Bills OC Greg Roman, but his duties are yet to be sorted out.
- According to Jamison Hensley, Roman’s title with the Ravens will be senior assistant tight ends coach.
- Hensley adds that current tight ends coach Richard Angulo is moving to assist the offensive line.
Mary Kay Cabot is hearing that former Bills OC Greg Roman is joining the Ravens’ coaching staff in some capacity.
Roman’s name came up as a potential option to replace Pep Hamilton as the Browns’ assistant head coach. However, Jason La Canfora later reported that Roman could instead be added to the Ravens’ coaching staff in a run-game specialist type of role, so the news doesn’t come as a complete surprise.
The Ravens still have an opening on their offensive staff and could really use some improvement in regards to their ground game, which happens to be Roman’s area of expertise.
Even if the Ravens bring in Roman, Marty Mornhinweg is still expected to remain their offensive coordinator. Although, Roman would give them an option to turn to during the season if the offense continues to struggle.
Roman, 44, began his NFL coaching career with the Panthers back in 1995 as their offensive line assistant. He had short stints with the Texans and Ravens before later being hired as the 49ers to run their offense in 2011.
Roman spent four years in San Francisco and was later brought in by the Bills as their offensive coordinator in January of last year. Unfortunately, the Bills elected parted ways with Roman just a few weeks into the regular season and promoted Anthony Lynn as his replacement.
We’ll have more regarding the Ravens and Roman as the news is available.
