It sounds like the Cleveland Browns may have found their next offensive coordinator.

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, the Browns have “engaged in serious talks” to have Todd Haley become their new offensive coordinator, serving under head coach Hue Jackson. As we all know, Haley had been the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offensive coordinator since 2012, but did not have his contract renewed after last week’s playoff loss to the Jaguars.

Additionally, Mortensen said that Hall of Fame QB Kurt Warner gave a “strong endorsement” for Haley to the Browns.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer believes that Jackson would turn over playcalling duties to Haley if he is hired.

For those wondering, Haley’s time as head coach with the Kansas City Chiefs did not overlap with the time that John Dorsey was their general manager.
