Kevin Stefanski Makes Big First Move As Browns Coach
Kevin Stefanski made a big first move as Browns coach on Sunday.
Shortly after it was announced that Cleveland had decided to hire Stefanski as the team’s new head coach, another interesting tidbit emerged.
Stefanski, the now former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator, had his sights set on an offensive coordinator to fill out his new coaching staff.
Who is that offensive coordinator? That we don’t know.
What we do know, though, is that it is not the team’s current offensive coordinator Todd Monken.
According to ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler, Monken is out.
Browns OC Todd Monken is not expected to stay on staff with new coach Kevin Stefanski, per source. Monken is being considered for several college playcalling jobs.

The presumption is that Monken will now take a job at the collegiate level.
Prior to arriving in Cleveland, Monken served as an offensive coordinator with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
With him at the helm, the Bucs ranked in the top ten in points in both 2017 and 2018, and led the league in passing yards in 2018.
Obviously Monken was unable to carry over that success to Cleveland.
