After a bad ending in Washington, Kyle Shanahan has landed on his feet.
The Browns have hired Shanahan as their offensive coordinator, Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports.
Shanahan spent the last four seasons in Washington as offensive cooridnator under his dad, Mike Shanahan. Prior to that he spent two seasons as offesnive coordinator in Houston and was previously receivers coach and quarterbacks coach with the Texans.
In Cleveland, the big question is less about the kind of offense Shanahan will run than about whether they can find the right quarterback to run it. The most likely scenario is that they’ll use their first-round draft pick on a quarterback of the future, and hope he turns out to be better than their last first-round quarterback, Brandon Weeden.
