Cleveland, OH, United States (4E Sports) – The Cleveland Browns are expected to hire Kyle Shanahan as their new offensive coordinator, according to sources.
Shanahan worked as offensive coordinator for four years with the Washington Redskins under his father, Mike Shanahan. They were both fired last season.
In 2008, the younger Shanahan became the NFL’s youngest coordinator at 28 when he worked with the Houston Texans under Gary Kubiak.
A team source said Shanahan “did well” in his interview for the position but the Browns do still plan still plan to conduct more interviews.
“We have interviewed four people,” the source said. “[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.”
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.
