With no more oc jobs, we need to get him back.

We should make QB or WR coach, just make it work.

If Kubiak leaves at the end of next year he could take over and be OC.

This would be great for us.  Cmon Ozzie, Harbs, Biscotti reach out to this guy!!

He lives right down I-95.

Its kinda pointless now. We already have a QB coach and there are better WR coaches we can reach out to. If Kubiak leaves, we could promote Dennison to OC anyway.

Unfortunately, he wants nothing less than an OC job.....

The only reason I might agree is if Kubiak is snatched up next year, we would already have a replacement OC with basically the same system in place.

Ding ding ding!

 

Revisit his situation in a few days, and if he settles for WR coach, hire him. 

 

Then when Kubiak leaves (it's inevitable), we have Shanahan.

If Kubiak leaves he will take Dennison with him. They have played together and worked together since forever. No way Dennison stays if Kubiak leaves.

That's my dream scenario. Sure we could keep Dennison, but he didn't call plays as the OC in Houston. Shanahan has become known as a play caller and could step right in if/when Kubes moves on to a HC gig.

The only question marks are how Shanny would handle an effective demotion, and how well he would mesh under Kubiak and the rest of the staff.

Thats a good idea but is he really a good Wr coach? He probably would be better as  offensive consultant or  a pass game coordinator( i doubt that happens) .

Consultant would be okay, but WR coach would fill a vacancy too. And, it would be good to have someone who's already worked for Kubiak as WR coach

I think he'd be fine. I also think as fans, we tend to overestimate the effect of position coaches, we tend to give them too much blame (I'd say too much credit too, but I've never seen a fan praise a position coach).

Of course, I'd want the top coaches we could get, but we stashed Mike Nolan as WR coach until he could take over as DC and the world didn't end. I think if Shanny wants to come aboard, we fit him in wherever...even RB coach.

Coaches take promotions and demotions all the time and Kyle worked under Kubiak in Texas for 3 yrs before joining his father in Washington.

While that is true, the dynamic in this case is pretty unusual:

-Shanahan worked for Kubiak 4 years ago in a higher position
-Shanahan is a finalist for this OC position only to have Kubiak swoop in a the last second to take the job
-To take a job with the Ravens, Shanahan would have to take a demotion and effectively be in the same spot he started in 8 years ago.

Don't get me wrong, is love for it to happen, and with no other OC positions, it might, just don't know how happy he'd be about it. Also, don't know if the fact that Kubes has known Shanahan since he's been in diapers would help or hurt lol.

They could change Dennison's title to that if Kyle comes on board so he can be the QB coach.  It's not like they're locked into things, and Dennison will be floating anyway.

Shanahan is more younger and energetic it would be a huge safety net if kubiak's health gets worse or he leaves.  QB coach and let dennison do something else.

Its really no brainer. They need to think of the future.  Shanahan should jump on this its like wait a year and its yours

This makes sense, Dennison was presented as the offensive assistant, and QB coach only in title.

I agree with this, Kyle can be hired as QB coach and Dennison's title to change to senior offensive assistant also looking over running backs

titles dont seem to mean much anyways.

 

if he wants to here there is a place on the ravens.

 

call him the pass game coordinator but secretly be the QB coach while dennision is called the QB coach but installs the offense and serves as glue and kubiak oversees everything on offense as the offence HC.

 

all in secret of course.

 

should make some sense.
