The Ravens have interviewed former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan for their offensive coordinator vacancy, according to a league source.
Shanahan previously interviewed for the Miami Dolphins' offensive coordinator job that went to Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor.
The Ravens are expected to interview several candidates for the job, including at least one internal candidate: wide receivers coach Jim Hostler.
A former Houston Texans offensive coordinator, Shanahan was fired along with his father, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, following a 3-13 season.
During Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's first NFL season under Kyle Shanahan's direction, he was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.
During his second season, however, Griffin III's production dropped as he came back from a major knee injury suffered during the playoffs after his rookie season.
The Redskins lost eight consecutive games and Griffin III didn't play in the final three games as backup Kirk Cousins took over with Griffin III sat down for his own protection, according to Mike Shanahan.
Prior to this season, Kyle Shanahan was regarded as a promising young assistant coach with NFL head coaching aspirations.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
