Ravens Part Ways with Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman

NFL

The list of teams needing new offensive coordinators continues to swell today. We learned that the Buccaneers fired Byron Leftwich earlier this morning, and now the Ravens and OC Greg Roman are parting ways.

In a press release, the Ravens announced the move this afternoon, saying that the organization and Roman were parting ways mutually.

Roman had served as the offensive coordinator in Baltimore since 2019, when Lamar Jackson won the MVP award thanks to Roman’s revamped offense in Baltimore.

After former Ravens offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg retired following the 2018 season, Roman was promoted to OC from his position of senior offensive assistant. After designing a dynamic new offense for the Ravens centered around Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram II, Baltimore averaged 33.8 points per game after 12 weeks. The Ravens finished 1st in scoring and second in yardage in 2019.

The Ravens had 3,296 rushing yards in 2019, breaking the New England Patriots mark for most rushing yards in a season.

But the offense has grown stale in recent years. Here’s how the offense has ranked in the four seasons under Roman:

  • 2019: 1st in points, 2nd in yards
  • 2020: 7th in points, 19th in yards
  • 2021: 17th in points, 6th in yards
  • 2022: 19th in points, 16th in yards

Roman was also the offensive coordinator in San Francisco from 2011 to 2014 under Jim Harbaugh. During that time, Roman developed an offense for quarterback Colin Kaepernick that was very successful in its early years.
