The Ravens aren't done overhauling their offensive coaching staff with further changes anticipated following a season where the offense struggled to regularly manufacture points and yards. Now that the Ravens have hired offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak and quarterbacks coach Rick Dennison, they still have other positions to fill. "It's going to be in flux a little bit," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday during an introductory news conference for Kubiak and Dennison at team headquarters.

Aside from former defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano leaving to coach the Indianapolis Colts, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said at Friday's introdutory press conference for new defensive coordiantor Dean Pees that he'd like the rest of his staff this year to return. However, he didn't dismiss the possibility that he could still lose a couple of his staff members. There has been some speculation that defensive line coach Clarence Brooks, who has now been passed over in consecutive seasons for the defensive coordinator post, could head to Indianapolis to work under Pagano.

What appeared to be a two-man competition for the Ravens' vacant offensive coordinator job includes at least one other candidate, according to a team source. Ravens coach John Harbaugh spent Sunday interviewing an undisclosed candidate at the Under Armour Performance Center, a development that adds further intrigue to a process that appeared to be wrapping up. When Harbaugh informed Pittsburgh Steelers running back coach Kirby Wilson on Saturday that he was going in a different direction with the hire, that seemingly left current Ravens wide receivers coach Jim Hostler and former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan as the two remaining candidates.

It's been four games since Jim Caldwell replaced Cam Cameron as the team's offensive coordinator. One might think that Caldwell is feeling comfortable with his role, but he disagreed Thursday with the notion that he is “settled in.” “I don't think we ever really feel comfortable and settled in,” he said. “But I'm a bit more familiar with some things. But it's a real challenge, calling plays and adjusting. But I've got a lot of help with assistant coaches that are on the staff.

Anquan Boldin's toughness has been defined by one hit in September 2008 — a violent helmet-to-helmet shot while trying to make a touchdown catch over the middle that knocked him out and shattered his face. Multiple facial fractures had to be repaired by 40 titanium screws and seven plates. The wide receiver's displaced jaw had to be wired to realign his bite. Then, as if he were coming back from a broken finger instead of a broken face, Boldin returned to the field after two missed games to make nine catches.

The season was a whirlwind for the Ravens' 2011 class of rookies. It swept them up when the NFL lockout ended last July and dropped them at The Castle in Owings Mills a day later for their first training camp. It carried them through a 12-4 season all the way to the AFC championship game and spit them out after that heartbreaking loss. Only then could their heads stop spinning. "The rookies that we have right now can't believe that last year's rookies went right into training camp without these sessions," assistant head coach and special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg said after Wednesday's organized team activity.

Getting familiar with the Ravens' playbook is the first priority for wide receiver T.J.Houshmandzadeh. Getting comfortable with his new team's colors is another objective. "It was a little weird when I tried my helmet on today," the team's newest offensive addition said at a Tuesday afternoon news conference at the team's training facility in Owings Mills. "I'm not a person that really likes change. I'm starting to realize that about myself. But sometimes change is better. " After eight seasons of playing against them as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals and one year with the Seattle Seahawks, Houshmandzadeh gets to line up with the Ravens, who agreed to a one-year, $855,000 deal.

The Ravens hired two offensive assistants yesterday, adding wide receivers coach Jim Hostler and quality control coach Craig Ver Steeg to coach John Harbaugh's staff. Hostler - who spent the past three years with the San Francisco 49ers, including last season as the team's offensive coordinator - has tutored receivers such as Santana Moss, Donte Stallworth, Wayne Chrebet and Justin McCareins. "Adding another coach who has been a coordinator in the NFL brings quality experience to the staff," Harbaugh said in a statement.
