Cam Cameron says he’s not leaving LSU after report of Browns interest

The Browns need a new offensive coordinator, but it doesn’t look like it will be Cam Cameron.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that the Browns were “considering” Cameron as Mike Pettine’s offensive coordinator, but Cameron acted quickly to put out word that he’s not interested in leaving LSU. LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette sent out word via Twitter that Cameron spoke to him and said he’s not going anywhere and that he plans to be in Baton Rouge for a long time.

Cameron didn’t leave the NFL in the best shape when he was fired as the Ravens offensive coordinator just before they made their run to the Super Bowl XLVII title, but he put together an effective unit in his first year at LSU after years of struggling to score points in the SEC.

Assuming Cameron sticks to his plan to remain in the college ranks, the Browns will turn their attention toward other candidates. Former Texans coach Gary Kubiak has been floated as a possibility, albeit an unlikely one, as has former Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains.

    There was nothing wrong with Norv Turner. Whoever the Browns get he won’t do a better job than Norv. Josh Gordon didn’t do what he did because Norv wasn’t there figuring out a way to get him the ball with no QB. Look at what he got out of Jason Campbell too.

    Cam Cameron would rather be with a camera wearing camouflage in Cameroon than be coaching the Browns

    Makes sense to stay at a school That’s in the championship hunt every year with a backyard full of talent to recruit than it does to go to a place that really isn’t close to having a playoff team.

    My wife says Baton Rouge is much nicer to live in than her native Cleveland.

    When your front office undermines the coaching staff and makes coaches the scapegoat for a team that has the same personnel problems at the end of the year it had at the beginning, Do you expect coaches to jump at the job or shy away from it?

    LSU for coming here to Cleveland?
    Ha HaHa HaHaHa.
    This is proving my haSLUM lead Browns are still circling the bowl.
    Nothing says “that would be a great job” like “please don’t even call me”.

    These coach’s do not like ” the structure ” .
    Or is this another example of bad journalism, influencing public opinion ?

    When the Grand Plan for Improvement includes substituting Cameron as a (pro) OC for Norv Turner, you need to re-think your strategy.

    I think this was a case of “Norv, we’re going to drop your name, so we can make other good potential candidates think this is a desirable job.”
