Report: Former Penn State WR Bobby Engram, OC Joe Moorhead Interviewed for Baltimore Ravens OC Job

Beaver Stadium -- David Hague

Penn State legend Bobby Engram has twice interviewed for the Baltimore Ravens’ offensive coordinator position, and former Penn State OC Joe Moorhead has interviewed once, the Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec reported.

Whoever Harbaugh hires will be replacing Greg Roman. Roman left the Ravens last month in what’s said to be a mutual agreement.

Engram’s most recent job was at the University of Wisconsin. He spent this past season in Madison as the school’s offensive coordinator. Wisconsin finished seventh in the Big 10 in scoring average.

Engram wasn’t retained by new boss Luke Fickell.

Engram coached with the Ravens from 2014-21. He was in charge of the wide receivers from 2014-18, and both the wide receivers and tight ends from 2019-21. Bobby Engram is known to Penn State fans for his accomplishments as a player.

He’s the leading receiver in school history and won the first-ever Biletnikoff Award for the nation’s top receiver in 1995. He’s still the only Penn State player to win the award. After college, Engram played 14 NFL seasons. He spent time with the Chicago Bears (1996-2000), Seattle Seahawks (2001-08) and Kansas City Chiefs (2009). Some thought Engram was a candidate for Penn State’s wide receivers coaching job after Taylor Stubblefield’s firing. But that position ended up going to former Virginia WR coach Marques Hagans.

Moorhead, currently the Akron head coach, was also interviewed.

Zrebiec wrote that Moorhead— who ran Penn State’s offense from 2016-17— “has spent his entire coaching career at the college level, but the Ravens have a familiarity with him, and vice versa.

“The Ravens bring in college coaches at different points of the offseason to trade ideas and get a better sense of some of the concepts that are gaining popularity at the college level,” Zrebiec wrote. “Moorhead has visited the Ravens’ Under Armour Performance Center and taken part in those sessions.”

Zrebiec reported that former Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien was initially on Baltimore’s list, but O’Brien “was expected to wind up back with the New England Patriots from the jump.” He did end up back in New England.
