The Baltimore Ravens are understood to have interviewed former St. Louis Rams head coach Scott Linehan for their vacant offensive coordinator position, reports NFL.com.

The 50-year-old is one of "several options" being considered according to the Baltimore Sun, but so far Washington Redskins coordinator Kyle Shanahan is the only other confirmed name on the prospective shortlist.

Linehan has held the position of OC before, most recently with the Detroit Lions, where he coached some of the most pass-heavy teams in NFL history, with Matthew Stafford breaking the record for pass attempts in 2012.

For that reason alone, Shanahan would appear to be the better fit at the M&T Bank Stadium, given head coach John Harbaugh's stated tactical preferences.

However, Linehan's love for the vertical passing game, twinned with the presence of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, could prove to be decisive in the eventual appointment of Harbaugh's next offensive coordinator.
