2. James Urban, quarterbacks coach, Ravens

James Urban has never been an offensive coordinator at any level of football before, but there’s always a first time for everything. And Urban certainly makes sense as someone who could replace Greg Roman.

A former wide receiver in college, Urban, like Martin, has worked extensively with quarterbacks and wide receivers during his coaching career. Most importantly, he’s worked extensively with Lamar Jackson.

Urban has been Jackson’s quarterbacks coach for the entirety of his NFL career and that relationship he has with the team’s star quarterback could go a long way in determining who would replace Roman.

The Pennsylvania native has over 20 years of coaching experience including experience working under Andy Reid in Philadelphia.

During his time with the Eagles, he also worked with Michael Vick and was briefly promoted to the position of assistant offensive coordinator before leaving to become the wide receivers coach in Cincinnati.

Urban makes sense given his familiarity with Jackson and the rest of the offensive coaching staff, and he offers the same allure that Tee Martin does in that he could introduce different elements to this stagnant offense.

It might only be a matter of time before James Urban gets an offensive coordinator position somewhere. Perhaps it’s in Baltimore.
