Kyle Shanahan takes three-year deal to be Browns OC
Kyle Shanahan has agreed to a three-year deal with the Browns.
Kyle Shanahan wasn't out of work long. Jason La Canfora reports the former Redskins offensive coordinator is, as expected, taking the Browns offensive coordinator job and has agreed to a three-year deal with Cleveland.
La Canfora reports Shanahan had a "very impressive interview" Wednesday and the "sides have stayed in touch since." Shanahan took the job after returning to the US on Monday from a vacation.
Shanahan had a tumultous season with Washington in 2013. He and his father parted ways with the Skins after an end-of-season benching of quarterback Robert Griffin III and Washington skidding to a 3-13 record.
He'll replace Norv Turner, who is now with Mike Zimmer and the Vikings, after Turner was let go along with Rob Chudzinski.
Cleveland recently hired Mike Pettine away from the Bills as their latest head coach and it'll be up to Shanahan to help turn around an offense that was not particularly impressive in 2013.
Certainly the addition of Shanahan will ramp up speculation that the Browns could pursue Kirk Cousins, the Redskins backup who was a Shanahan favorite.
