As the Baltimore Ravens look to replace offensive coordinator Greg Roman, who the organization recently parted ways with, it appears that head coach John Harbaugh is yet again dipping into the college ranks.

According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Ravens interviewed the University of Georgia offensive coordinator Todd Monken for their OC job. Pelissero reports that after winning back-to-back national championships at the college ranks, Monken is eyeing a potential return to the NFL. He’s also set to speak with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers about their offensive coordinator opening — a position he held from 2016-18.

Just after the Buccaneers fired Byron Leftwich, Pelissero’s colleagues at NFL Network — Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo — mentioned Monken as a name to watch for Tampa Bay’s now-open offensive coordinator position.

The Ravens will have competition, but Baltimore gives Moken an opportunity to potentially work with Lamar Jackson — a player which the organization has been pretty adamant that they want to keep for years to come.

“John Harbaugh: Lamar Jackson is our quarterback,” Baltimore Banner’s Jonas Shaffer tweeted on Jan. 19. Shaffer quoted Harbaugh in a tweet and added, “Harbaugh said he ‘200%’ wants Jackson as the Ravens’ quarterback of the future.”

At the same time, Harbaugh acknowledged in moving on from Roman that a change needs to be made offensively. Who better than the man who helped turn Stetson Bennett into a Hesiman-caliber player?
