Pat Shurmur is about to work with another quarterback of the 2019 NFL Draft class.
Shurmur, who was fired two weeks ago as head coach of the Giants, immediately became a sought-after candidate for multiple teams in search of an offensive coordinator, despite his impressive development by rookie Daniel Jones, a source told the post.
Shurmur has chosen the Broncos and a deal is expected to be made several unconfirmed reports, In this case, he will be paired with Drew Lock, who has thrown 1,020 meters this season in five starts with seven touchdowns and three interceptions.
Kyler Murray (Cardinals), Jones and Dwayne Haskins (Redskins) were the three quarterbacks of the first round. The Giants showed interest in the second-round player Lock, who played at the University of Missouri and in SEC fights against Shurmur's son Kyle.
When the Browns hired Kevin Stefanski on Sunday to fill the last position as head coach, they opened two other logical points of contact for Shurmur: The Vikings – where he supervised and preceded Stefanski as an offensive coordinator in 2016-17 and built the summary to Giants to become a coach – and the Browns.
But Shurmur was once fired as Brown's head coach (2011-12). It's rare, but not uncommon (Dave Campo and Cowboys, Gunther Cunningham and Chiefs, Wade Phillips and Broncos) that a coach returns years later as a coordinator to an organization where he was fired as chief.
The bears trained by Shurmur's friend Matt Nagy also showed interest in Shurmur. The Broncos position was only open on Sunday when Rich Scangarello was released after one season.
