Mike Pettine has reportedly added someone to his offensive coaching staff, it’s just not clear what role Dowell Loggains would occupy.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Loggains has been hired by the Browns and will be on the staff as either the quarterbacks coach or offensive coordinator. Loggains reportedly met with the Browns on Thursday. Loggains was the offensive coordinator in Tennessee for over a year before being let go at the end of the season along with coach Mike Munchak.

The Browns have also reportedly spoken to former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, but Rapoport reports that he is unlikely to end up in Cleveland. Rapoport’s colleague Albert Breer reports that the team wanted to hire Bill Callahan as offensive coordinator and Loggains as quarterbacks coach, but the Cowboys have not allowed Callahan to look for employment elsewhere despite adding Scott Linehan to the staff to call plays.

Raiders quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo has also been in the mix and reportedly interviewed with the team on Thursday as well.
