McLane writes that Shurmer has been hired but his title is to be determined. Assistant HC, offense? I like this.

Didn't he fail in Cleveland?

Yes he did but he was a pretty good offensive mind. See Bradford's first year. Not a great coach but a good QB developer.

Kind of an odd pairing with Kelly, isn't it? Shurmer runs a completely different kind of offense.

Maybe that's the idea. Kelly is clearly comfortable having someone in place with a different viewpoint that he can bounce ideas off whilst remaining in overall charge.

It can be dangerous having two people whose thinking is too similar - when it came to the passing game Reid and Morningweg were like two alcoholics in a bar egging each other to have "just one more".

Yeah, I totally agree. Kelly made it clear that he wanted his OC to be a guy that is comfortable with the passing game. Bringing in a guy that has a completely different offensive mentality is a refreshing change.

I complained for years about the incestuous nature of the Reid years. The FO and coaches were all of the same mindset/mold. It's a good thing having diversity within the organization.
