According to new Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski, Norv Turner will be calling the plays as offensive coordinator for the team.
Chudzinski said, “Norv’s been one of the best playcallers in the league for a long time,” when asked about the decision. Chud went on to say that he needs to recognize the abilities of the coaches around him and he feels confident that Turner will do a great job.
That’s good news for Browns fans who were wary of Pat Shurmur over the last few years going without a coordinator completely in year one and preferring to continue to hide behind his laminated play sheet again in season two. It will still be up to the newly named Chud to manage the game effectively, but if he falters in that realm, at least it won’t be the easiest and most obvious criticism to lob first about him trying to do too much.
