Report: Browns hire Brad Childress

By Jamison Hensley

The Browns have hired Brad Childress as their offensive coordinator, two sources confirmed to the Akron Beacon Journal.

The team has yet to announce the move. Childress became the front-runner for the job after Mike Sherman decided to join the Miami Dolphins as their offensive coordinator.

Browns head coach Pat Shurmur has a long history with Childress. They spent seven years together on the Eagles' staff under Andy Reid before Childress left to take over as head coach of the Vikings from 2006-10. Childress, 55, has been out of football since being fired by the Vikings in November 2010.
