Browns name Norv Turner offensive coordinator

CLEVELAND - Norv Turner will lead the Browns offense under new head coach Rob Chudzinski, the team announced Thursday.

Turner's resume includes 38 years of NFL coaching experience, the past six years as the San Diego Chargers' head coach. The Chargers fired Turner this offseason.

The 60-year-old has excelled as an offensive coordinator, winning two Super Bowls with the Cowboys in the 1990s. He has also held the offensive coordinator title in San Francisco (2006), Miami (2002-03) and San Diego (2001).

Turner brings his son Scott with him to the offensive staff as wide receivers coach.

Other additions to the coaching staff include Mike Sullivan as offensive line coach and Brad Roll as strength and conditioning coach. The Browns retained coaches Chris Tabor (special teams) and George Warhop (offensive line).

"I am very excited about the coaches we have been able to add to our staff thus far," said 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."

Turner replaces Brad Childress as Browns offensive coordinator.

This will be a role reversal of sorts, as Chudzinski previously worked under Turner as tight ends coach/assistant head coach in San Diego.
