Two Ravens assistants follow Gary Kubiak to Broncos

1/19/2015

The Baltimore Ravens' coaching staff will undergo another big turnover for the second straight year.

Less than an hour after offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak reportedly accepted the Denver Broncos' head-coaching job, a league source confirmed that quarterbacks coach Rick Dennison and tight ends coach Brian Pariani are following Kubiak to Denver.

Many expected both Dennison and Pariani to leave because they came from Houston to Baltimore with Kubiak last offseason. But there had been speculation that either Dennison or Pariani might stay to take over as offensive coordinator.

This means the Ravens have lost five coaches over the past six days: Kubiak, Dennison, Pariani, secondary coach Steve Spagnuolo (who became the New York Giants' defensive coordinator) and offensive quality control assistant Jay Harbaugh (who became the University of Michigan's tight ends coach).

The Ravens will add a new offensive coordinator, tight ends coach and secondary coach for the third offseason in a row.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has shown the ability to put together a staff and not experience much of a transition. The Ravens have never had a losing season in Harbaugh's seven seasons, and they've reached the postseason in six of them.
