The Cleveland Browns have hired their new Offensive Coordinator to replace Alex Van Pelt who was let go by the team on January 17th. The organization decided to go in a different direction with the offensive coaching staff.
Cleveland will now hand the reigns over to former Buffalo Bills Offensive Coordinator Ken Dorsey who was fired by the Bills this past season after a 5-5 start. During his playing days, Dorsey appeared in one game with the Browns in 2006 and 11 games in 2008.
In Dorsey's first full season as Bills OC in 2022, the Bills were 4th in the NFL in offensive yards and points scored. Under Dorsey's direction this past season, the Bills offense had failed to score 25 or more points weeks 5 through 10 before the Bills made the change.

Dorsey was among several candidates to interview for the Browns open OC job including Chargers OC Kellen Moore, Seattle OL coach Andy Dickerson, Texans QB coach Jerrod Johnson and former Eagles OC Brian Johnson. Sources say the Browns came away from the interview with Dorsey very impressed.
It will be interesting to see how much of the play calling duties head coach Kevin Stefanski decides to hand over to Dorsey.
