OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says former Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak has been hired to be the Baltimore Ravens' new offensive coordinator.

The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because the Ravens had not announced the hiring. The 52-year-old Kubiak replaces Jim Caldwell, who left to become coach of the Detroit Lions.

Kubiak was offensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos for three years before being named Houston's head coach in 2006. He was fired on Dec. 6 of this season after the Texans started 2-11.

He had a 61-64 regular season record and went 2-2 in the postseason with Houston.

Kubiak takes over an offense that was ranked 29th in the NFL. Baltimore went 8-8 after winning the Super Bowl last year.
