Now that Chip Kelly has landed in Philadelphia, he now has to put together his coaching staff. One expected move is the hiring of Pat Shurmur for the vacant offensive coordinator position, according to Michael David Smith of profootballtalk.com.
Shurmur’s résumé includes 23 years of coaching experience, including 12 in the NFL. Shurmur began working for the Philadelphia Eagles in 1999.
In 2009, Shurmur was hired by Steve Spagnuolo to be the offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams. In 2011, Shurmur was hired by Mike Holmgren, with whom he shares agent Bob LaMonte, to become the next head coach of the Cleveland Browns.
The new ownership decided to go in a different direction and Shurmur was fired following the 2012 NFL season.
