Former Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson is heading to Minnesota for the Vikings job, leaving the Baltimore Ravens two candidates for the vacant offensive coordinator position that became open when Jim Caldwell left for the coaching position in Detroit.
According to profootballtalk.com, Clifton Brown of CSNBalitmore said that the current options are Ravens' receivers coach Jim Hostler or former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.
NFL media insider Ian Rapoport reported that it has come down to Jim Hostler, who has been in the position of Ravens' wide receivers coach since 2008. Hostler was the San Francisco 49ers' offensive coordinator in 2007 for only one season.
Kyle Shanahan, former Texans and Redskins coordinator has had a spotty career recently with his tenure in Washington. The Redskins offense was remarkable in 2012 with the NFC East division, but mediocre in 2013 with Robert Griffen the III as quarterback.
