OWINGS MILLS, Md. - The Baltimore Ravens have fired former Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman as offensive co-ordinator and replaced him with quarterbacks coach Marty Mornhingweg.

Coach John Harbaugh made the move Monday, less than 24 hours after the Ravens managed only one touchdown in a 16-10 loss to Washington.

Operating against the league's 29th-ranked defence, Baltimore failed to score in the second half after abandoning a running game that worked well before halftime.

Quarterback Joe Flacco said he was "embarrassed" at the way the offence has played this season.

Trestman was a star head coach with the Alouettes with an eye for offence. With quarterback Anthony Calvillo under centre, Trestman led the Alouettes to back-to-back Grey Cup titles in 2009 and 2010.

He was named CFL coach of the year in 2009.

Harbaugh said his decision to dismiss Trestman came after "very careful consideration." He added: "We will work to be better in every aspect of our football team."

Trestman was in his second season as Baltimore's offensive co-ordinator. Last season, the Ravens had the second-most total net yards in team history but went 5-11.
