Report: Ravens To Interview Steelers RBs Coach Kirby Wilson Later This Week
Outside of firing offensive line coach Jack Bicknell Jr., the Pittsburgh Steelers have managed to keep their coaching staff in tact so far this offseason. However, Garrett Downing of BaltimoreRavens.com reports on Wednesday that Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is scheduled to interview Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson later this week for their vacant offensive coordinator position.
According to Downing’s report, Harbaugh has already interviewed Ravens wide receivers coach Jim Hostler, former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and former Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.
Wilson has been coaching the Steelers running backs since being hired by head coach Mike Tomlin in 2007. Many thought that he would possibly succeed Bruce Arians as the Steelers offensive coordinator a few years ago prior to him being severely burned in a house fire just before the 2011 Wild Card game against the Denver Broncos.
Both Harbaugh and Tomlin are down in Mobile, AL for the Senior Bowl this week.
