If you didn’t hear, the Cleveland Browns have a new head coach and he’s NOT named Jon Gruden!
DP provided us all with a little history on Shurmer. Terry Pluto has a pretty solid piece, full of some supporting pieces on why fans should be willing to give this guy a chance before he calls a single play.
And if these words of wisdom were not enough, we now have some testimonials and well-wishes from some of Shurmer’s former peers and players.
Rams Head Coach Steve Spagnuolo
“I am very happy for Pat and his family. I very much appreciate Pat and what he has done to help us grow as a team these last two years. I wish him and his family the very best in Cleveland.”
Rams General Manager Billy Devaney
“Pat is a very good football coach and has done an excellent job for us. He is deserving of this opportunity and I wish him and his family the best in Cleveland.”
Rams Running Back Steven Jackson
“I knew it would not be long before Coach Shurmur got a head coaching job in this league. He was a good coordinator for the Rams and on Sundays, he got the most out of his players and always had us in a position to win the game. Congratulations to Coach Shurmur and his family.”
Rams Quarterback Sam Bradford
“This is a great opportunity for Coach Shurmur. I really enjoyed working with him last season and he truly helped my transition from college to the NFL game. I think he will be a really good head coach.”
