It appears the Cleveland Browns may be close to hiring two coaches with ties to the San Diego Chargers as their coordinators. Former Chargers head coach Norv Turner appears to be the choice as the Browns' offensive coordinator, and The Plain Dealer also reported in Cleveland that Chargers defensive coordinator John Pagano could be headed to the Browns to take the same position. Pagano, 45, is the brother of Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano. New Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski worked with John Pagano and Turner while he was an assistant with the Chargers. Pagano would replace Browns defensive coordinator Dick Jauron, a member of former coach Pat Shurmur's staff. Pagano completed his first season as Chargers defensive coordinator in 2012 after serving four years as the team's linebacker coach. The Kansas City Chiefs also were interested in speaking with Pagano after new coach Andy Reid came on board, but the Chargers reportedly wouldn't let Pagano out of his contract and the Chiefs subsequently hired New York Jets linebackers coach Bob Sutton as their defensive coordinator. There was no confirmation on whether the Chargers would do the same with the Browns. Turner's hiring will be finalized when he returns from vacation in Hawaii with his family, The Plain Dealer reported.
