Norv Turner, fired New Year’s Eve after a long run as the San Diego Chargers’ coach, will join Rob Chudzinski’s Cleveland Browns staff as offensive coordinator.

Turner’s son, Scott, will coach the wide receivers. Chudzinski is interviewing Raheem Morris, the Washington Redskins’ defensive-backs coach, for the defensive coordinator position.

“Norv has been one of the most respected offensive coaches in the NFL over the last 25-30 years, and he has had a tremendous amount of success at each one of his stops – as a position coach, coordinator and head coach,” Chudzinski, who has a lengthy history with Turner, said (via Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot). “I was able to learn a great deal in the time that I worked for him in San Diego, and I expect that having him as our offensive coordinator will make a big impact on that side of the ball.”

Chudzinski was Turner’s tight ends coach under Turner in 2005-06 and also was assistant head coach from 2009-10, with a brief run as the Browns’ offensive coordinator in the middle.
