Browns to hire Kyle Shanahan as OC
The Cleveland Browns will hire Kyle Shanahan as their new offensive coordinator, sources confirmed to ESPN.
A high-ranking team source told ESPN that Shanahan "did well" in his interview for the position but also claimed that the Browns still plan to conduct more interviews.
Kyle Shanahan spent the past four seasons as the Redskins' offensive coordinator under father and coach Mike Shanahan. Both were fired in December.
"We have interviewed four people," the team source told ESPN. "[The] plan now is still to interview either one or two more. Would be surprised if that changes. He did well, and has a real chance, but others have also done well."
Shanahan had been the offensive coordinator for the last four seasons under his father, Mike Shanahan, with the Washington Redskins.
The younger Shanahn also was the offensive coordinator for the Houston Texans under Gary Kubiak; he was the NFL's youngest coordinator in 2008 at 28 years old.
The Redskins fired both Shanahans on Dec. 30, one day after completing a 3-13 season.
Kyle Shanahan will replace Norv Turner, who presided over the NFL's 18th-ranked offense in his one season as the Browns' offensive coordinator.
The Browns fired offensive-minded head coach Rob Chudzinski after one season and replaced him with Mike Pettine, the former Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator.
