Gary Kubiak will join the Baltimore Ravens as offensive co-ordinator, the team announced today.
The former Houston Texans head coach was unveiled by Ravens coach, John Harbaugh at a press conference in Baltimore this afternoon.
Kubiak was fired by the Texans after seven years with the team. He was the head coach of the AFC Pro Bowl team in 2012 but the Texans could only manage a 2-14 record in 2013 as Bill O'Brien was brought in to replace Kubiak.
The Ravens former offensive co-ordinator, Jim Caldwell was appointed as the head coach of the Detroit Lions earlier this month. Caldwell was hailed as a big impact in quarterback, Joe Flacco's form on the way to Super Bowl victory last season.
The Ravens had been expected to hire former Washington Redskins offensive co-ordinator, Kyle Shanahan but have instead managed to lure in an experienced head coach for an assistant position.
At the press conference John Harbaugh said: "It's a great, I'm excited about it. We have a chance to build the best offensive staff in the National Football League."
Kubiak said "I have great respect for the organization, It's a chance to be a part of a Championship organization."
The Ravens also hired former Texans offensive co-ordinator Rick Dennison as a quarterback coach.
