The Baltimore Ravens have hired former Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman as their new offensive coordinator, the team announced Tuesday.
Trestman, the teams’s fourth offensive coordinator in as many years, replaces Gary Kubiak, who left to become the head coach of the Denver Broncos.
Under Kubiak, the Ravens had a significant improvement on offense and quarterback Joe Flacco had his best statistical season, throwing for over 3,900 yards, 27 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Trestman spent two years in Chicago as the head coach, going 13-19 in that span and 5-11 in 2014. Trestman is known as a great offensive mind despite the turmoil that occurred during his time in Chicago.
The Ravens quick trigger pull on Trestman shows they must have been impressed with his interview and his body of work.
Before coming to Chicago, Trestman won two Canadian Football League championships with the Montreal Alouettes. He also was the Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator while Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome was a player, according to the Ravens’ website.
