The Cleveland Browns announced Tuesday that they’ve officially hired former Dolphins OC Chad O’Shea to be their next WR coach and passing game coordinator.
“He grinds on the tape, he spends a lot of time with his players on the nuances of the position. He’s kind of like that proverbial gym rat that spends a ton of time with the game,” new HC Kevin Stefanski said of O’Shea. “That’s the qualities I saw in him early on in his coaching career. Then he goes to New England and has a ton of success there. He’s attained what we’re looking to go get. He has this unique knowledge of a successful program, which I think is really enticing from my perspective.”
“I like to be surrounded by smart people and good coaches. Chad just spent a year calling it, so he understands the things that go along with play-calling and learned a ton of lessons he can help me with,” Stefanski said. “Spending all that time in the New England program, having a ton of success. I think it’s made him a better coach and I’m looking forward to drawing on some of those experiences with him to try and make our staff as complete as it can be.”
According to Ian Rapoport, the Browns have hired former Dolphins OC Chad O’Shea to be their next WR coach and passing game coordinator.
O’Shea finds a new home shortly after being let go by Miami after just one year. The Patriots and Giants had been speculated as potential landing spots but he ends up with new Browns HC Kevin Stefanski.
O’Shea, 47, began his coaching career at Houston as a graduate assistant for the 1996 season. From there, he worked his way up to TEs coach/special teams coach before departing for his first NFL coaching job with the Chiefs in 2003.
O’Shea later caught on with the Vikings and spent three years in Minnesota before the Patriots hired him as their WRs coach in 2009. The Dolphins hired him as their offensive coordinator this past February.
In 2019, the Dolphins’ offense was No. 27 in total yards, No. 25 in points scored, No. 32 in rushing yards and No. 12 passing yards.
