A lot of Rams fans complained about offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur all year and wanted him to get fired.
Well, maybe he’ll leave town for a promotion instead. The Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports that Shurmur will interview with Mike Holmgren for the head coaching position in Cleveland. (The Rams’ season-ending offensive explosion must have clinched the opportunity.)
Shurmur cut his teeth under Andy Reid in Philadelphia, so he’s from the same coaching tree as Holmgren. The Browns are also expected to interview Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey, Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell, and possibly Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
Shurmur would appear to be a real long shot for the job, but that’s also what we thought about Mike McCarthy in Green Bay and various other surprising coaching hires over the years.
