Ian Rapoport reports that the two known candidates for the Browns’ offensive coordinator job are former Bengals OC Ken Zampese and Texans QB coach Sean Ryan.
Browns HC Hue Jackson made it clear that he will be looking to hire an offensive coordinator for the 2018 season after he has handled the duties for his first two years in Cleveland.
Ryan 45, began his NFL coaching career with the Giants back in 2007 as their offensive quality control coach. He spent nine years in New York in a few positions before he was hired by the Texans as their WRs coach in 2016.
Houston elevated Ryan to their quarterbacks coach last year.
Zampese, 50, began his NFL coaching career with the Eagles as an offensive assistant back in 1998. Since then, he’s worked for the Packers and Rams before the Bengals hired him as their quarterbacks coach in 2003.
The Bengals promoted Zampese to offensive coordinator for the 2016 season. However, he was unfortunately fired as offensive coordinator a few weeks into the 2017 season.
In 2016, the Bengals’ offensive was No. 19 in points scored, No. 13 in total offense, No. 15 in passing yards and No. 13 in rushing yards.
We’ll have more regarding the Browns’ offensive coordinator search as the news is available.
