The Cleveland Brows like to take their time when it comes to finding coaches to fill out their largely vacant staff, and that extends beyond the agonizingly long head coaching search to the hunt for an offensive coordinator. After losing Norv Turner to the Minnesota Vikings, the Browns are starting to look at candidates to replace him.
Cleveland’s lethargic pace has already caused them to lose out on potential candidate Gary Kubiak, who was scooped up by the Baltimore Ravens on Monday. As a result, the Browns have turned their attention to the guy Kubiak took the job from before it could be offered to him — Kyle Shanahan.
Cleveland now talking to former #Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan, according to multiple league sources.

Shanahan was on the Ravens radar to replace Jim Caldwell, who became the head coach of the Detroit Lions, but the team decided to hire Kubiak instead. Now the Browns are talking with Shanahan about filling their vacancy at offensive coordinator.
The other name the Browns have kicked around is Bill Callahan, and he’s still currently employed by the Dallas Cowboys, meaning Shanahan is likely to get the job unless the Browns put it off like they did their head coaching search.
