We learned over the weekend that Kyle Shanahan will be the new offensive coordinator for the Browns.
On Monday, there’s some word about when the deal will be signed and how long it runs. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Shanahan is expected to sign a three-year deal with the team on Tuesday.
Last year’s experience with Rob Chudzinski is a reminder that contracts don’t always reach their conclusion, but Shanahan should be able to stick around for a while if he can run an offense quarterbacked by someone better than the guys the Browns ran out last season. They have the fourth pick in the draft to use for a quarterback if they choose and Brian Hoyer is expected to be ready for offseason work after his knee injury.
With Shanahan in place, the Browns have found their coordinators on both sides of the ball for Mike Pettine’s first staff. Jim O’Neil will run the defense and former Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains is reportedly set to become the team’s quarterbacks coach.
