The Cleveland Browns officially named Kyle Shanahan their offensive coordinator.

The team announced the move Monday night.

Shanahan traveled to Cleveland on Monday after completing a family vacation, according to a person familiar with the situation. Sources had said over the weekend that Shanahan was expected to complete a contract with the Browns early this week.

He spent the previous four seasons working for his father Mike as the Washington Redskins‘ offensive coordinator. Both were fired after a 3-13 season.

Kyle Shanahan interviewed for offensive coordinator jobs in recent weeks with the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens but was passed over by those teams. In Cleveland, he’ll be working for newly hired head coach Mike Pettine, formerly the defensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills.
