Found December 30, 2012 on NFL Trade Rumors:
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that current Browns’ head coach Pat Shurmur could end up with the Vikings as their offensive coordinator following his dismissal. This is an obvious indication that currency Vikings OC Bill Musgrave is in danger of being replaced in the coming weeks. Shurmur runs the west coast offense, so the Vikings could be looking to simplify things for QB Christian Ponder next season. Shurmur will coach his last game today as the Browns head coach. His current record stands at 9-22, so it’s really not surprising that Cleveland’s new ownership is prepared to make sweeping changes. It’s worth nothing that this is just a potential option and by no means a certainty.   The post Vikings Interested in Pat Shurmur Taking Over Their Offense? appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
