Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports that Browns OC Todd Monken is not expected to return under new HC Kevin Stefanski.
Instead, Fowler says Monken is being considered for several college play-calling jobs.
This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, given that Stefanski is likely to be the team’s offensive play-caller and could end up bringing offensive assistants with him to Cleveland.
Beyond that, recent reports said that Monken wasn’t happy with how the year has played out.
According to Zac Jackson of The Athletic, Monken told opposing coaches prior to games that Cleveland is a “total mess” and that HC Freddie Kitchens‘ play-calling “generally steered away” from the gameplan they made during the week.
Monken, 53, began his coaching career back in 1989 as an assistant at Grand Valley State. His first NFL coaching job came with the Jaguars in 2007 as their WRs coach.
After a few years at Oklahoma State, Monken was hired as Southern Miss’ head coach for the 2013 season. He spent three years in the position before joining the Buccaneers as their offensive coordinator in 2016.
The Browns hired Monken as their offensive coordinator last year.
In 2019, the Browns were No. 22 in total yards, No. 22 in points scored, No. 12 in rushing yards and No. 22 in passing yards.
