Another team is in the market for an offensive coordinator.

Greg Roman will not return to the Baltimore Ravens next season after serving as their OC for the last four years.

Roman's agency, Athletes First, revealed on Thursday that he's "stepping away to pursue other opportunities."

"Greg has led the development and success of a record-setting offense in Baltimore for several seasons," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. "He is a tremendous football coach, as well as family man and person."

Roman previously served as OC for the San Francisco 49ers (2011-14) and Buffalo Bills (2015-16) before joining Harbaugh's staff in 2017. He was promoted to offensive coordinator before the 2019 season, the same year that Lamar Jackson won league MVP.

Baltimore was 16th in yardage this season after Jackson missed the final five games with a knee injury. Jackson is set to hit free agency this offseason, making this hire critical for the Ravens. They could use the franchise tag on him if they're unable to work out a long-term deal.

After Roman's departure, there are now 10 teams with offensive coordinator vacancies: Patriots, Ravens, Buccaneers, Chargers, Commanders, Titans, Rams, Jets, Colts and Cardinals. Tampa Bay fired Byron Leftwich earlier on Thursday.
