Unless the Ravens improve dramatically on offense, it's safe to assume they will interview candidates to become the team's offensive coordinator, including Jim Caldwell.
Caldwell became the OC when the Ravens fired Cam Cameron after Sunday's loss to the Washington Redskins. It makes sense for the Ravens to interview others because there should be some attractive candidates out there, like Philadelphia's Andy Reid and San Diego's Norv Turner, long-time head coaches who are expected to be let go by their respective teams at the end of the season.
Caldwell has impressive credentials, and the Ravens might also want to look at some of their other assistants like receivers coach Jim Hostler, tight end coach Wade Harman and running backs coach Wilbert Montgomery. Harman and Mongtomery are long-time Ravens coaches and have produced some outstanding players like tight ends Todd Heap, Dennis Pitta and running backs LeRon McClain, Ray Rice and rookie Bernard Pierce.
Also, I just took a look at the tape of the Ravens game against the Redskins, and several times the cameras had shots of heated exchanges between head coach John Harbaugh and Cameron. In one shot, if Harbaugh could have grinded his teeth any harder, they would be nubs.
