THURSDAY, 5:53pm: A league source told Nate Ulrich of the Beacon Journal it’s “very likely” that Loggains will become the Browns’ quarterbacks coach, meaning that the OC search is likely to continue.
5:35pm: The Browns have hired former Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains to join their coaching staff, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (via Twitter). It’s quite possible that Loggains will be Cleveland’s new offensive coordinator but he could also end up serving as quarterbacks coach.
Meanwhile, Rapoport (link) would be surprised if the Browns hired Kyle Shanahan to be their next OC based on what he’s hearing. Earlier today, it was reported that the Browns had their eye on Shanahan, who missed out on the Ravens and Dolphins openings, for the gig. League sources have indicated that reported friction between Shanahan and Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III last season may have hurt his stock.
Loggains spent six season with the Titans and worked his way up the ladder during his time there. He served as quarterbacks/passing game coach for two-and-a-half seasons before being promoted to OC on November 26, 2012.
