Browns Hire Mark Whipple as QB's Coach; No Offensive Coordinator This Season

According to reports by ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cleveland Browns have hired Mark Whipple as their new quarterbacks coach. Whipple has been a candidate for a position on the Browns' staff for several weeks now, and the hiring has finally come to fruition. Whipple was formerly a quarterbacks coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers (pre-Mike Tomlin) and the offensive coordinator for the University of Miami.

Schefter believes the fact that Whipple was named the quarterbacks coach is another sign that the team will not hire a person under the "offensive coordinator" title.

With Whipple and Pat Shurmer, Browns not likely to hire an OC.

The Browns' primary staff is now set in stone, so the new assistant/position coaches should come rolling in over the next couple of weeks.

Update: The Browns also hired former Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Bill Davis as their new linebackers coach. Davis interviewed with the Browns before the hiring of Dick Jauron, and it was believed at the time that he was interviewing for our defensive coordinator position.
