Ravens Hire Todd Monken as New OC

The Baltimore Ravens have a new offensive coordinator. Former Georgia OC Todd Monken will take over the play calling duties for the Ravens in 2023. Monken most recently led the Bulldogs to back-to-back National championships in 2021 and 2022.

Monken has experience calling plays in the NFL as he was the OC in Tampa Bay from 2016-2018. In 2018 the Buccaneers led the NFL in passing yards per game with 320.3 and finished third in total offense averaging 415.5 yards per game.

After not being retained by the Buccaneers at the end of the 2018 season Monken joined the Cleveland Browns for the 2019 season. During that season Monken helped running back Nick Chubb rushe for 1,494 yards, second most in the NFL that season. While also helping quarterback Baker Mayfield throw for a career high 3,827 yards and 22 touchdowns.

The Ravens conducted 21 interviews with a total of 14 candidates to fill their OC position and the Ravens felt that Monken sets them up the best to turn their offense around to compete for Super Bowls. The Ravens were likely drawn to Monken’s success particularly in the passing game. The Ravens ranked 28th last season in passing and have ranked 22nd or worst five of the last six seasons.

Monken’s style of offense is perfect for what the Ravens like to do as Monken uses two tight end sets regularly while also allowing his quarterbacks to do what they do best and adjusting to their specific skill sets.
