(WXYZ) -- The Detroit Lions interviewed Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach James Urban Wednesday for their offensive coordinator position, according to a report from NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Urban has served as Baltimore's quarterbacks coach since 2018. He spent the previous six seasons as wide receivers coach with the Cincinnati Bengals, after spending 2004-10 in various roles with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was asked about Urban and other assistants potentially taking jobs elsewhere.

"If those opportunities for coaches come up, I'm happy for them," Harbaugh told team reporter Clifton Brown. "I want them to advance career-wise if that's something they want to do. We'll have those conversations in the next couple of days. Guys are interviewing today for different jobs that are promotions to coordinator roles. We'll see how it goes."
