The Browns today released a statement that Norv Turner has been hired (officially) as the new Offensive Coordinator. “The Cleveland Browns today named Norv Turner as Offensive Coordinator. Turner was one of six additions to the coaching staff, which also includes Brad Roll (Strength & Conditioning), Mike Sullivan (Offensive Line) and Scott Turner (Wide Receivers). In addition, Chris Tabor (Special Teams Coordinator) and George Warhop (Offensive Line) will be retained from last year’s staff.” “I am very excited about the coaches we have been able to add to our staff thus far,” said Browns Head Coach Rob Chudzinski. “I have worked with Norv, Mike, Scott and Brad previously and know the quality of coaches and teachers that they are, and how much our players will benefit from their presence.” “Norv has been one of the most respected offensive coaches in the NFL over the last 25-30 years, and he has had a tremendous amount of success at each one of his stops – as a position coach, coordinator and head coach. I was able to learn a great deal in the time that I worked for him in San Diego, and I expect that having him as our offensive coordinator will make a big impact on that side of the ball.” Here is Turner’s coaching resume- 1975 University of Oregon, graduate assistant coach 1976-79 University of Southern California, wide receivers coach 1980 University of Southern California, defensive backs coach 1981-83 University of Southern California, quarterbacks coach 1984 University of Southern California, offensive coordinator 1985-86 Los Angeles Rams, wide receivers coach 1987-90 Los Angeles Rams, wide receivers and tight ends coach 1991-93 Dallas Cowboys, offensive coordinator 1994-2000 Washington Redskins, head coach 2001 San Diego Chargers, offensive coordinator 2002-03 Miami Dolphins, offensive coordinator 2004-05 Oakland Raiders, head coach 2006 San Francisco 49ers, offensive coordinator 2007-12 San Diego Chargers, head coach 2013- Cleveland Browns, offensive coordinator [Related: Morris to interview for Defensive Coordinator]
