Browns hire Norv Turner to be new OC-- Thu Jan 17 2:40 pm --
Former Chargers' head coach to revamp offense
The Browns today named longtime NFL head coach Norv Turner as their offensive coordinator and added five other assistants to new coach Rob Chudzinski's staff. The ability to bring Turner along as coordinator was one of the big selling points for the first-time head coach, who was hired last Thursday. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
FF Today's Take:Turner takes over a Browns' offense that ranked 24th in the NFL in points per game (18.9) and 25th in yards per game (314.3) in 2012. Prior to the 2012 season, Turner's offenses in San Diego were consistently among the best in the NFL, so it'll be interesting to see what he can do with a Cleveland team that has some good young pieces in Trent Richardson, Brandon Weeden and Josh Gordon.
