Yet another former member of Andy Reid’s staff from Philadelphia will be moving his way up the coaching ladder to becoming a head coach.
According to NFL Network’s Jason La Confora, the Browns are done with interviews, will work out a contract with Rams’ offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, and name him their new head coach.
The Browns and Shurmur’s agent, Bob LaMonte, will be finalizing the deal today. LaMonte also represents Browns’ president Mike Holmgren, GM Tom Heckert (another former Eagle), and executive vice president Bryan Wiedmeier.
In the past, Shurmur has coached Donovan McNabb and Sam Bradford, helping each greatly to become very good quarterbacks, although Bradford only had one year with him.
The guy who could replace Shurmur in St. Louis is Josh McDaniels, who’s known as a very good quarterbacks coach in his own right.
UPDATE (12:08 CST): The Browns will have a press conference on Friday to announce the hire.
