Ravens HC John Harbaugh details process of departure for former OC Greg Roman

The Baltimore Ravens made the decision to part with offensive coordinator Greg Roman after their playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, and are currently undertaking a search for the right candidate to fill the role in 2023. The team has put together a good list of reported candidates, and will leave no stone unturned in the process.

During his end-of-season press conference, head coach John Harbaugh told reporters about his role in Roman’s departure. He made it clear that moving on from the veteran coordinator was not a task he took lightly, with hours of conversation coming between the end of the season and the decision

“I’m not going to be able to take you through every step of the way because it’s an ongoing process, Harbaugh explained. “We’re talking every day throughout the season; these conversations are going on consistently and constantly. So, I think just after the season, Monday we talked, Tuesday we talked, [and] Wednesday we talked. There were just hours of conversation that delved in all kinds of different things [and] directions. We’re talking families, we’re talking our kids, we’re talking the team, we’re talking the plays in the game – we’re talking about everything. Just through all that, we’re partners, but we’re also friends. It just worked its way into that place where I think he felt like that was the best, and we felt like that was the best, too. We just understood where we were at.”

While fans wait to find out who the Ravens’ next offensive coordinator will be, they can take solace in the fact that Harbaugh and the team are working diligently to assemble the best possible coaching staff to help Baltimore compete for a Super Bowl in 2023.
