Kyle Shannahan Likely Will Not be Cleveland Browns New OC

Kyle Shannahan interviewed for the Cleveland Browns opening at the offensive coordinator position and it doesn’t seem that he will be on the short list for the job:

“My understanding is that it is a long shot for (Shanahan) to be able to land the Browns job,” (Ian) Rapoport said on NFL Network’s Super Bowl Live on Thursday. “I’m told the meeting did not exactly go as planned, and I would be surprised if the Browns made a move and hired either of these guys (Shanahan and DeFilippo) quickly.”

“What I would think the Browns do, based on talking to people close to the situation, is go back and interview a couple more candidates.” –

The Browns were interested in Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Bill Callahan and former Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, but those guys are no longer options for the Brown. The Browns are scrambling to find an offensive coordinator.

Are there any good options left? Do any of those good options want to even coach for the Browns?

    Trying to find an OC now that’s going to completely control the offensive side of the ball, and be good at his job, is going to be difficult. There’s always a small chance they hit a home run with a guy, but with this FO I’m not banking on it.

      that is the tough part of getting the coaching staff set so late

    Once again the Browns will fail in coach selections and will be doing this again next year.
