NFL.com writer Jason La Canfora tweeted today that Mike Sherman and Brad Childress, both candidates for the Tampa Bay Head Coaching job and targeted by the Browns to be Shurmur’s Offensive Coordinator, will now start looking for OC positions.
The Buccaneers hired Rutger’s Greg Schiano to be their new coach, which filled the last head coaching vacancy. As has been reported at WFNY before, both candidates have ties to Shurmur and/or Mike Holmgren, and were considered heavy favorites to be given the job. Obviously either candidate would have accepted a head coaching job before becoming Shurmur’s OC, and there is no telling if either would be willing to allow Shurmur to call the plays.
Regardless, with all the HC positions filled, look for the OC search to intensify.
