Norv Turner named Browns offensive coordinator
Team also fills five other coaching positions
by WKSU's GRANT ENGLE

Reporter

In The Region:

After a week of speculation, the Cleveland Browns named six coaches to its staff Thursday.

The additions include Norv Turner as the Browns offensive coordinator. Turner served as head coach of the San Diego Chargers over the last six seasons.

Turner was criticized by sports pundits because the Chargers failed to make the playoffs the last three seasons, and many say he misused a wealth of talent within the franchise.   

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says he likes the hiring of Turner, and that he should settle back into the familiar role of being an offensive coordinator.

"It’s kind of the difference between a guy who’s a very good car mechanic as opposed to a guy who’s running the entire car dealership. Put him in the garage and give him his computer and all his wrenches and everything else – he’s great. You bring him out front – he’s got to deal with the sales department, the customers and everything else – suddenly, you see his weaknesses. But this guy’s a very good offensive mechanic, and clearly, the Browns offense needs fixing."

Turner was the offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys from 1991 to 1993 – a stretch that included back-to-back Super Bowl championships. 

The Browns also retained special teams coach Chris Tabor and offensive line coach Chris Warhop.
