Stanford discussed its coaching vacancy with Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman.
The Cardinal are beginning the search for a replacement for David Shaw, who resigned after 12 seasons at Stanford.
Roman was contacted by Stanford regarding the job, the Baltimore Ravens confirmed.
“Greg talked to me, said there’s been some contact there,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday. “I think it’s very preliminary right now. We have really great coaches, they’re going to have opportunities. We try to encourage that and support that any way we can.”
Roman has been an assistant coach with the Ravens since 2017 and was an offensive assistant at Stanford in 2009 and 2010 under Jim Harbaugh.
Harbaugh ended the chat about Roman with media when asked if his play-caller’s replacement was on the current Baltimore staff.
“We’ll cross that bridge when we get there,” Harbaugh said. “I think we’re pretty far from that at this point.”
