That said, head coach John Harbaugh was said to be "very complimentary" with the way his staff handled the re-shaping of the offense for Lamar Jackson and now Roman will have a full offseason to implement a scheme suited to Jackson's skill set. Ravens coach John Harbaugh told The Athletic Friday that he'll promote Greg Roman, who has been coaching the tight ends and coordinating the team's run game, to fill the role Mornhinweg has occupied since the 2016 season.
Roman's promotion could be part of a possible restructuring of the offensive coaching staff under Harbaugh.
Though he's losing the coordinator job, Zrebiec reports that Harbaugh has asked Mornhinweg to remain with the team in a different role.
Baltimore's running backs coach, Thomas Hammock, is reportedly a top candidate to become the head coach at his alma mater, Northern Illinois, so there could be more changes coming to the Ravens' staff.
Roman was the offensive coordinator with the San Francisco 49ers from 2011-14, working primarily with Colin Kaepernick. He was widely credited with helping to rejuvenate the Ravens' running game previous year with running back Alex Collins and this season after Jackson took over for Joe Flacco in Week 11. Baltimore's rushing attack, which was largely coordinated by Roman, carried it to the AFC North crown and finished No. 2 in the National Football League with 152.6 yards per game. But their AFC wild-card-round loss Sunday to the Los Angeles Chargers was marred by perhaps Jackson's worst performance as a starter.
Roman has directed the Ravens' running game the past two seasons and the ground attack has improved each year.
