As of last night, former Vikings coach Brad Childress was close to landing a job with the Browns. And Childress now has.
According to multiple reports, Chilly is the new offensive coordinator in Cleveland.
He joins the team after a year out of the game, following his 2010 in-season termination by the Vikings. Before becoming the Vikings’ head coach in 2006, Childress had worked as the offensive coordinator in Philadelphia.
It’s unknown whether Childress, who didn’t call the plays when he was the offensive coordinator of the Eagles, will call the plays in Cleveland. If he does, here’s hoping that the resists the temptation to dial up his patent-pending “12 men in the huddle” formation.
