Shortly after the Detroit Lions hired Jim Caldwell to be their head coach earlier this month, Ravens fullback Vonta Leach reached out to Ravens coach John Harbaugh and encouraged him to interview Gary Kubiak, his former coach in Houston, for the team's vacant offensive coordinator position. So of course Leach was excited on Monday afternoon when the Ravens announced that they had hired Kubiak -- whom Leach recently called “ a great coach, great father, great man ” -- to be their offensive coordinator and that Kubiak was also brining along Rick Dennison to be the team's new quarterbacks coach.

Joe Cool has become Comfortable Joe. Throughout the years, there is one picture of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco etched in the minds of every fan. It's the one where Flacco sits on the bench after a failed series with a blank look on his face. He talks to no one, and doesn't even look at game photos. As teammates walk by, Flacco continues to stare into the abyss. That doesn't happen any longer. Because of a new coordinator, position coach, blocking scheme and running game, Flacco's completion numbers and passing yards are up and his interceptions and sack totals are down.

It was a whirlwind couple of days for Gary Kubiak after arriving in Baltimore on Sunday. Ravens coach John Harbaugh sold him on his vacant offensive coordinator position over dinner -- and presumably a fine bottle of wine -- at his Baltimore County home that night and Kubiak and the Ravens spent much of Monday finalizing the terms of his new contract and discussing how their offense might come together in the coming months before Kubiak was introduced to...

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.

Most of the Ravens' top decision-makers are in Mobile, Ala., this week for the Senior Bowl. The week of practices followed by Saturday's game will give team officials and scouts an extended look at many members of the 2014 draft class. It will also give head coach John Harbaugh an opportunity to fill the handful of coaching vacancies on his staff. The Senior Bowl is like a big job fair of sorts as coaches from all levels travel there to network and to express interest in different openings.

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.

Pro Football Hall of Fame right tackle Mike McCormack , who coached the Baltimore Colts in 1980 and 1981, died Friday at age 83, the Carolina Panthers confirmed.

He was named to the NFL's 75th anniversary all-time team.

His teams went 7-9 in 1980 and 2-14 in 1981 before he was succeeded by Frank Kush . McCormack later was president, general manager and interim coach of the Seattle Seahawks.

Keith Wenning exhibited nice touch in hitting wide receiver Jeremy Butler down the right sideline. Several plays later, Wenning found tight end Crockett Gillmore in the middle of the field, one of several catches on the day for the third-round selection. The Ball State quarterback, who was taken in the sixth round of last week's draft, showed plenty of accuracy and arm strength on the second official day of the Ravens' rookie minicamp. But it's everything leading up to the 6-foot-3 quarterback bringing back his right arm and letting the ball go that has been the biggest challenge for Wenning this week.
