Report: Baltimore Ravens Have Fired Marc Trestman

Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Marc Trestman has been fired.

After the team's second straight loss, the Baltimore Ravens are making a coaching change. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, offensive coordinator Marc Trestman will be fired Monday. Trestman's departure comes one day after the team struggled to move the ball against the Washington Redskins, resulting in a 16-10 loss.

Baltimore's lone touchdown, a seven-yard score that came on a pass from Joe Flacco to Crockett Gillmore, came less than five minutes into the contest. Flacco finished 30-of-46 for 210 yards with the one score.

Trestman, who has worked for a number of NFL squads, got his coaching career started as an assistant for the Miami Hurricanes back in 1981. He'd been the offensive coordinator for the Ravens since 2015.

Trestman's firing means Marty Mornhinweg will take over role of offensive coordinator.

Baltimore, through five games, ranks 23rd in the NFL in terms of yards per game. The Ravens also rank 23rd in terms of points per game - at 18.8.

The Ravens are now 3-2 after the loss to the Redskins. They take on the New York Giants next Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET.

Update: The Ravens have made it official, tweeting the news from their Twitter account.

Here's what head coach John Harbaugh had to say regarding the matter:

"After very careful consideration, I have decided to make a change to our offensive coaching staff and have replaced Marc Trestman with Marty Mornhinweg as offensive coordinator for the rest of the season. My obligations are to the team, the organization and the fans to be the very best team we can be. Today we find ourselves one game out of the division and conference lead after experiencing two tough losses at home. We will work to be better in every aspect of our football team. Our expectations are high, and we look forward to fulfilling them.

"I appreciate and respect the efforts and contributions Marc has made to the team since his arrival. Marc is a good person and an excellent football coach."
