Greg Roman is stepping down after four seasons as the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator, the team announced Thursday.

"After visiting with (head) coach (John) Harbaugh and after huddling with my family, I have decided that now is the right time to move on from the Ravens so that I can explore new challenges and opportunities," Roman said in a statement obtained by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo.

"I'll truly miss Baltimore, but at the same time, I am excited to attack my next opportunity with focus and passion," Roman added.

Baltimore's offense ranked 16th and 19th in yards and points scored this season, respectively, down from sixth and 17th in 2021.

Roman, who previously served as offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers (2011-14) and Buffalo Bills (2015-16), joined Baltimore in 2017 as a senior offensive assistant and tight ends coach. He became the team's assistant head coach in 2018 before taking over as coordinator in 2019. He was named Assistant Coach of the Year in his first season on the job.

Roman had an immediate impact on the Ravens' offense, improving the unit from 13th to first in scoring during his first year and helping Lamar Jackson win the MVP award.

"Greg has led the development and success of a record-setting offense in Baltimore for several seasons," Harbaugh said Thursday.

He added, "Greg devised and led our offense to no fewer than 26 historical NFL and franchise achievements. He established an identity for our offense. We are grateful for Greg's great work and abilities, and we wish him and his wonderful family the utmost happiness going forward."

Baltimore hasn't been able to replicate that success in recent years, ranking below the league average in total points in each of the last two seasons. Jackson missed 10 regular-season games combined in that span due to injuries, including this season's final five contests.
