Browns Hire Nolan Cromwell as Senior Offensive Assistant

The Browns have added a senior offensive assistant, as the team today announced the hiring of Nolan Cromwell. The 56-year-old will take the spot of Keith Gilbertson, who retired after holding the title of senior offensive assistant last season.

Cromwell was with the Rams the last two seasons as the teams wide receivers coach.

He played with the Rams as an All-Pro safety, and after his playing days ended he coached special teams with the Rams (1991) before spending six seasons as the special teams coordinator on Mike Holmgren’s coaching staff with the Packers.

He moved to receivers coach in 1998 before following Holmgren to the Seahawks, where he coached the receivers until 2007. After a two-year stint as offensive coordinator at Texas A&M, Cromwell rejoined the Rams organization as a wide receivers coach in 2010, working with then-offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, who is now the Browns head coach.

    An assistant before the OC? Really?

  2. Boo3legs says:

    Cromwell was with Mike Sherman at Texas A&M for awhile, this may point to Sherman coming to the Browns as OC. They also coached Tannehill, just a game of connect the dots.

  3. Dan B. says:

    Hmm, a former DB as an offensive coach, sounds logical to me, NOT. The Rams let him go for a reason. How do you hire an assistant when you have no OC, seems like the NEW OC will be in name only to satiate the fans while he continues to make the calls.

  4. Boo3legs says:

    Who better to have as an offensive assistant than someone who knows defensive strategies and tendencies. Your argument may be valid on the surface, but how can you explain DL coaches that were linebackers, or OL coaches that were TE’s or RB coaches that were WR’s.

  5. Ben Swt says:

    If you would look at this mans credentials you will find he is an offensive and defensive player. He still holds the NCAA record (294 yards) for single game rushing as a quarterback (1975). I would gladly have this man on my staff any day. Look up his college and professional accomplishments before you write idiotic statements.
