In Marc Trestman's five stops as an offensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns, the San Francisco 49ers, the Arizona Cardinals, the Oakland Raiders, and then head coach of the Chicago Bears, his best statistical offensive year was his first.
The Ravens moved quickly to fill their offensive coordinator vacancy, replacing Gary Kubiak with Marc Trestman, another former NFL head coach with a reputation for getting the most out of quarterbacks.
On the heels of the fourth losing season under his watch, Washington Redskins president and general manager Bruce Allen vowed Wednesday to make whatever changes are needed to restore the team's winning tradition.
The vacation was a long time coming, a much-needed respite after a difficult couple of months. But not long after Gary and Rhonda Kubiak arrived at their destination, they were interrupted by the buzz of Gary's phone.
Gary Kubiak's Houston Texans were one of the NFL's best at running the football. In every season from 2010 to 2012, the Texans ranked in the top eight in the league in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns.
The Ravens have been keeping everyone hanging as they conduct what appears to be a thorough search for their next offensive coordinator, but if they were to get Gary Kubiak, the wait would be well worth it.
As the Ravens continue to search for a new offensive coordinator, former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan had a good interview this week and made a positive impression, according to sources.
Arian Foster is a talented back, no doubt, with soft hands and surprising burst for a man his size. But what makes him special is how he fits in the zone-blocking scheme the Houston Texans have used since 2008.
