The Oakland Raiders have hired NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock as their general manager, the team announced Monday.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden called Mayock a “passionate personnel man” on Sunday following his team’s season-ending 35-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

“He loves it,” Gruden said. “He has done it for a long time. I know he has had opportunities to get back into the NFL as a general manager. We will see what happens. We will see how the dust settles.”

Mayock has no experience in an NFL front office but will work with Gruden on upgrading a scouting and personnel department that struggled to find impact players in recent years. Mayock replaces Reggie McKenzie, whom the Raiders fired on Dec. 10.

He had drawn interest from teams with general manager openings in recent years, including the Washington Redskins before the 2017 season.

The Raiders, who finished 4-12, have the No. 4 overall pick in the draft, as well as the first-round picks belonging to the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — John Harbaugh deflected some of the criticism aimed at offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg on Monday, saying no one should point the finger at him even though the Baltimore Ravens rank among the worst offenses in the NFL.

The Ravens are the only team with an offense that ranks in the bottom five in yards and offensive points per game. Baltimore also failed to score an offensive touchdown in Sunday’s 27-24 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears.

Mornhinweg, who was promoted to coordinator about this time last year, is the playcaller for an offense that ranks 29th in yards per game (289.2) and 30th in offensive points per game (15.3).

“I think anytime you try to pin the blame on any one person in a team sport like this, that’s always going to be a mistake. That’s nonsensical,” Harbaugh said. “It just doesn’t work that way. But I understand that’s how it works. We all understand that.”

Harbaugh has twice fired offensive coordinators during the season in his 10 years in Baltimore. In December 2012, he dismissed Cam Cameron and hired Jim Caldwell, who helped the Ravens win the Super Bowl that season. In October of last season, Harbaugh made the change from Marc Trestman to Mornhinweg, who has failed to turn around the offense.

In 21 games under Trestman, Baltimore ranked 15th in total yards and 25th in scoring. In 17 games under Mornhinweg, the Ravens are 23rd in total yards and 23rd in scoring.

The Ravens have been held to one or no offensive touchdowns in seven games under Mornhinweg. That’s 41 percent of the time.

The one area where the Ravens have significantly improved is running the ball. Baltimore has the sixth-best ground attack in the league, although a large part of the credit for this goes to senior offensive assistant Greg Roman.

Harbaugh surprisingly chose to retain Mornhinweg as his playcaller at the end of last season. He didn’t sway from that decision as the offense has played a major role in Baltimore’s 3-3 start this season.

“I think Marty is a great coach. There’s no question in mind about it,” Harbaugh said. “I’ve seen him over the years, I know what he can do. I know what he’s trying to do. You do everything you can to put your guys in position to make plays and you’re in it together.”

The Ravens will visit the Minnesota Vikings (4-2) on Sunday.
