As rumors swirl about a potential replacement under new owner Jimmy Haslam, Cleveland Browns coach Pat Shurmur is focusing on the Washington Redskins and not saving his job.
Recent rumors have Alabama coach Nick Saban and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels as potential Browns coaches.
“I’m not going to focus on that,” Shurmur said Monday. “Our energy, our efforts are all going to be directed to the Redskins. It’s a little bit easier to be narrow-minded and short-sighted with three games to play. We have to make sure we stay in the moment. The math changes in those situations if you don’t take care of business this weekend.”
“I’m not worried about saving my (job), I’m worried about doing my job and that’s it,” Shurmur said. “Just want to do my job.”
If I had an Online Sportsbook, I wouldn’t put heavy odds on Shurmur being back in 2013. A new owner and a new feel to the team means a new coach will be in place next season.
