Found January 18, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
According to the PD, the Browns have hired former Rams WR coach Nolan Cromwell. Cromwell is being called a ‘Senior Offensive Assistant’. Cromwell served under Pat Shurmur in St. Louis, and also under Mike Holmgren in both Green Bay and Seattle. Cromwell also worked under Mike Sherman, who is believed to be a candidate for the offensive coordinator position. It is worth noting that the Rams’ offense did not strike fear into the hearts of men last season. They finished dead last in touchdown passes with 9, and averaged 5.9 yards per reception. For reference the Browns averaged 5.8 yards per catch. Cromwell was a four time Pro-Bowl defensive back for the Rams in the late ’70′s and ’80′s. He was named All-Pro three times in his career.
