Will be offensive coordinator under Rob Chudzinski.
(Berea) - The Cleveland Browns have named Norv Turner as Offensive Coordinator.
Turner was one of six additions to the coaching staff, which also includes Brad Roll (Strength & Conditioning), Mike Sullivan (Offensive Line) and Scott Turner (Wide Receivers).
In addition, Chris Tabor (Special Teams Coordinator) and George Warhop (Offensive Line) will be retained from last year’s staff.
“I am very excited about the coaches we have been able to add to our staff thus far,” said Browns Head Coach Rob Chudzinski. “I have worked with Norv, Mike, Scott and Brad previously and know the quality of coaches and teachers that they are, and how much our players will benefit from their presence.
“Norv has been one of the most respected offensive coaches in the NFL over the last 25-30 years, and he has had a tremendous amount of success at each one of his stops – as a position coach, coordinator and head coach. I was able to learn a great deal in the time that I worked for him in San Diego, and I expect that having him as our offensive coordinator will make a big impact on that side of the ball.
Norv Turner’s résumé includes 38 years of coaching experience, including 14 seasons as an NFL head coach where he won 114 regular season games. Most recently, he spent six seasons (2007-12) as the head coach of the San Diego Chargers.
Turner led the Chargers to a 59-43 (.578) regular season record and won three AFC West titles (2007-09). He also served as head coach of the Washington Redskins from 1994-2000 and the Oakland Raiders from 2004-05.
He also had stints as offensive coordinator in San Francisco (2006), Miami (2002-03), San Diego (2001) and Dallas (1991-93).
