Turner has been an offensive coordinator for five other teams in the NFL. He worked for the Dallas Cowboys from 1991-1993, the Chargers in 2001, the Miami Dolphins from 2002-2003 and the San Francisco 49ers in 2006.

In his 3 seasons with the Cowboys the team went 36-12. In his one year as the Chargers O.C. Turner went 5-10. In his 2 years with the Dolphins Turner went 19-13.

    When Haslam bought the Browns it was like Santa Claus coming to town.
    What a dissapointment when we looked under the tree and there was nothing there.

    • Bob

      So TRUE!!! Great comment!

    i’m just glad it’s chud as the head coach & norv as the OC & not the other way around.

  3. RB

    I believe Chud worked under Turner in the past, so they are familiar with one another. That should be a plus.

    • LG

      Yes he did

    • Bob

      And Pat Shurmur beat Norv Turner just a couple of months ago.

      • LG

        So what are you saying you would like to have Shurmur back? You’ve got to be drug tested…..

        • Bob

          Drug tested? That’s not a cool thing to say, if I disagree.

          No I don’t want Shurmur back. After all the hype with Kelly, I expected more. I expected coaches from playoff contending teams or at least a successful college head coach. I think that’s what most Browns fans expected. What happened to Arians?

          • LG

            Bob, it is just a joke. Sorry if I offended you…. Ya know like you have to be on drugs to want Shurmur back a joke….

          • LG

            I for one would have loved to see Arians here. But ya know, I am a bit excited to see what this kid can do. Maybe this is the next Bill Belichick. Lets see what he has to say once he starts to evaluate the talent on the team. That should tell us something……

    Great move, all you so called Browns fans never give anyone a chance. Been a die hard fan since 1952, best move since we hired wild Bill. Give the guy a chance.

    • Bob

      Great move for a Browns fan who settles for hope.

      Do you think it’s fine that this new regime made a spectacle last week over finding a big name successful coach and then hired a guy from another unsuccessful 2012 team?

      What I find interesting is that not ONE Browns player tweeted last night or today about this hiring, NOT ONE. I checked about 10-15 of their accounts. And so far I can’t find any browns players quotes about the hire anywhere. That my friend is telling. But hey he was a big fan growing up, so he must be good. The “he’s was a big fan since he was a little boy” is their big angle to sell us not his unsuccessful year that he just came off of.

      • tigersbrowns2

        just what the hell does tweeting have to do with how good chud will be as a coach ??

        if you believe in jimmy haslam , then you should believe in this choice for coach … whisenhunt was probably ready to be hired & chud convince the brass he was the guy … that’s good enough.

        i know it’s hard to be patient after what we’ve witnessed since 1999 , but you just gotta believe haslam will do whatever it takes to win … his conviction is unwavering.

        hang in there, man …

        • Bob

          The Browns 2008 season and the Panthers 2012 season tells me and others a lot especially the last 6 games of the Browns 2008 season. Plus what happened with Chip Kelly. I have little faith due to the last 14 or so years.

          • tigersbrowns2

            hi BOB … chud was not a head coach during these 2 seasons you mention.

            how about 2007 when the browns went 10-6 with chud as the OC & derek anderson, of all people, made the pro-bowl ?? the panthers were 5th & 12th in total offense the last 2 years under chud’s watch.

          • Bob

            Now it’s come down to looking and glorifying the 2007 season where they did not even make the playoffs. I see the media pushing and glorifying this 2007 season as if they won the Super Bowl. Coaches get fired for not making the playoffs. The Chicago Bears just had a 10-6 season and their coach was fired. I didn’t see the Panthers in this years playoffs. What I do see is Mike McCoy, Greg Roman, Bruce Arians & Jay Gruden leading their teams to at least one playoff game. Why didn’t these guys get an interview with the Browns? I think I know why. They probably did not want to come.

            Now Derek Anderson thinks he’s coming back? Now Michael Lombardi may come back. This is change? Rehashing?

            Bonus question: What NFL team has the record for the most amount of quarters without an offensive touchdown?

            Double Bonus Question; Who was the offensive coordinator for the NFL team that has the record for the most amount of quarters without an offensive touchdown?

          • LG

            Remember when the fans cheered when Derek Anderson went down with an injury. I remember how pissed off he got. Now the guy wants to come back to Cleveland….You have got to be freaking kidding me….

    do you all forget who Norv was working for and with? The GM stank it up and the owners were tightwads. else they would never have entered a season with 3 starters in contract holdouts – 2 of whom were top playmakers at WR and OL – this same season saw the bolts ranked 4th in revenue and 27/28th in payroll

    lets see…the cut brees, trade LT, Turner, Sproles, Jackson, etc, etc

    sounds a lot like the Indians…develop the talent and then let it go. don’t place that fault on Norv
