Ravens to interview Steelers RBs coach Kirby Wilson for offensive coordinator position

USA TODAY Sports

Division rival Baltimore will interview Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson for its open offensive coordinator job left by Jim Caldwell, who is now the head coach of the Detroit Lions.

Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson has seen several teams, offenses and running backs go through the South Side since 2007. That kind of experience is valuable.

Certainly to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Steelers' chief rival in the AFC North has sought and received permission to interview Wilson for the team's open offensive coordinator position. That role opened up when Jim Caldwell was hired by the Detroit Lions as their head coach earlier in the offseason.

Whomever the Ravens hire will be their third offensive coordinator in the last three seasons. Caldwell replaced Cam Cameron, who was fired before the Ravens' final two games of the 2012 season. Under Caldwell, the team exploded offensively, and the result helped power the team to a Super Bowl title.

Wilson has overseen productive, but not outstanding, running backs over the past seven seasons. What's more unique about him is he's overseen success from first round RB Rashard Mendenhall as well as undrafted RBs Willie Parker and Isaac Redman.
