Browns head coach Pat Shurmur will be his own offensive coordinator, he told The Plain Dealer on Thursday.

In 2010, the Patriots and Cardinals were the only teams without an offensive coordinator. Shurmur served as the Rams' offensive coordinator the past two seasons.

"That's the way it shaped up this year," he said.

Shurmur also said "it would be a logical assumption" that Colt McCoy would be the team's starting quarterback in 2011.

The way we see it

At his introductory press conference in January, Shurmur had said he would call games. Former University of Miami offensive coordinator Mark Whipple will be the quarterbacks coach. Under Shurmur, the Rams' offense ranked 26th in the league in ’10, only three spots better than the Browns last season. However, Shurmur did guide QB Sam Bradford to Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.
