Browns hire Shanahan as OC

CLEVELAND (AP) — New Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine has his play caller.

Kyle Shanahan was hired as offensive coordinator Monday after spending the previous four years in the same role with the Washington Redskins.

Pettine, hired Jan. 23 to replace Rob Chudzinski, is in his first job as an NFL head coach. His experience is as a defensive assistant, so he will rely heavily on Shanahan, who’s been a coordinator for the last six seasons and has 10 years as an NFL assistant.

An experienced coordinator is crucial as Cleveland tries to turn around its fortunes. The Browns, who had four offensive players in the Pro Bowl, are expected to select a quarterback early in May’s draft and Shanahan will have a hand in his development.
