CLEVELAND -- Kyle Shanahan has been hired as offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns.

The Browns made the announcement Monday, and Shanahan received a three-year deal, according to multiple media reports. New coach Mike Pettine was hired Jan. 23 to replace Rob Chudzinski, who was fired Dec. 29 after one season.

The 34-year-old Shanahan held the same job the past four seasons with the Washington Redskins, serving under his father, coach Mike Shanahan. The pair was fired Dec. 30. Kyle Shanahan was offensive coordinator of the Houston Texans for two seasons before that.

Shanahan interviewed with the Browns on Wednesday. He had interviewed for coordinator jobs with the Dolphins and Ravens.

The Browns also interviewed Raiders quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo on Thursday.

Pettine hired Jim O'Neil as his defensive coordinator last week.
