The Cleveland Browns are trying to become a force in the NFL once again, and today they are reportedly close to adding one of the game’s best to run their offense in 2013. Former San Diego Chargers coach Norv Turner is set to become the man to call the offensive shots as the new Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator.
According to a report today, Jan. 13 from ESPN, the Browns are close to adding Turner to their coaching staff, and will also hire a defensive coordinator to replace Dick Jauron.
Newly hired head coach Rob Chudzinski sounds like he is ready to get 2013 started today!
"Having the assistant head coach experience where I spent all the time with Norv and saw all the things he had to do, I've been around the people who've given me the opportunities to see what it takes to be a great head coach and hopefully I can put all those things together and get that done," Chudzinski said at his introductory news conference.
Turner was fired by the Chargers after finishing 7-9 in 2012 and failing to make the postseason for the third straight season.
Could this finally be the rise of the Browns? The young talent is in place, now it may just be a matter of time.
