Come on down to Coach-Mart where you can find your new coaching staff.

At least that’s what the start of this offseason must feel like for the Baltimore Ravens, who appear as though they’ll have a coach poached from their ranks yet again. According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, the Jacksonville Jaguars are interviewing former Ravens linebacker turned defensive coaching analyst Zach Orr as their new linebackers coach.

If Orr is indeed hired by Jacksonville, he’ll be reunited with Joe Cullen, who took the defensive coordinator job this offseason as well. Cullen had been Baltimore’s defensive line coach since 2016 before joining Urban Meyer’s coaching staff with the Jaguars.

Fans might better remember Orr not for his coaching ability but for what he did on the field in a helmet and pads. Orr was with the Ravens for three seasons as a linebacker, starting 15 games in his final season in 2016 before retiring due to a congenital spine condition. Orr had been a quickly rising star in Baltimore prior to his retirement, notching three interceptions, a forced fumble, two fumble recoveries, 133 tackles, and six tackles for a loss in his final season.

If Orr is hired by Jacksonville, he’s set to be the fifth coach to leave Baltimore this offseason, and the fourth on the defensive side of the ball. Orr will join the likes of Cullen, Mike Macdonald, Jesse Minter, and David Culley in leaving for a promotion this offseason. While the Ravens have filled three of their vacancies already, they’ll have a little more work added to their plate this offseason.
