ESPN reported Monday morning that the Baltimore Ravens are trying to assemble an offensive coaching staff that would feature former Houston coach Gary Kubiak as the coordinator with Kyle Shanahan and Rick Dennison as his top assistants.

Shanahan was the offensive coordinator under Kubiak in Houston before going to Washington to work with his father. Dennison joined Kubiak in 2010 as Houston’s offensive line coach, but worked with Kubiak as both an assistant coach and as a teammate during more than 15 years together in Denver. Shanahan and Dennison also know each other well. Dennison worked under Mike Shanahan with the Broncos.

Prior to Monday, Ravens assistant coach Jim Hostler was considered the favorite to get the offensive coordinator job.
