Plan C, Anyone? Musgrave Heads To Vikings As OC

Yesterday, most expected Bill Musgrave to be hired by the Cleveland Browns as their offensive coordinator. I guess the former Atlanta Falcons quarterbacks coach didn’t get the memo.

Musgrave was introduced yesterday as the new offensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings. Why would the job in Minnesota be more appealing than that in Cleveland? Simple. With the Vikings, Musgrave will likely be able to call the plays while that wasn’t going to happen in Cleveland.

So now the Browns are back to square one a bit. With Pat Shurmur as head coach it is not as important to have a strong OC, since Shurmur himself will be calling the plays. What the Browns do need is someone to be a mentor and confidant of Colt McCoy – a buffer between the head coach and the quarterback – someone that can work with him on a day-to-day basis.

Stay tuned…
