The Ravens moved into the final stages of their search for an offensive coordinator Thursday, conducting second interviews with two of their top candidates and planning to meet again with a third, Jeff Zrebiec and Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun report.
Ravens wide receivers coach Jim Hostler and former Texans and Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan met with team officials Thursday for the second time to discuss the vacancy, according to sources.
Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson, who interviewed with Harbaugh at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills on Wednesday, is due back Friday for his second interview, sources said.
There appears to be three finalists for the job, which opened when former Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell was officially hired as the head coach of the Lions on Jan. 14.
Harbaugh identified Hostler, Shanahan, Wilson and former Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan as four of the top candidates earlier in the week.
However, as of Thursday afternoon, a second interview with Linehan had not been scheduled, meaning it is unlikely that he is still under consideration. The Ravens have given no definitive timetable for hiring their third offensive coordinator in the past 13 months, though Harbaugh told the team’s official website that he did not want the process to go on much longer.
