The Cleveland Browns are beginning their search for an offensive coordinator and former Broncos coordinator Rich Scangarello will be the first to interview this coming week according to Cleveland.com.
Scangarello was fired on January 12 after just one season as the Broncos offensive coordinator under head coach Vic Fangio. Denver ranked 28th in scoring offense at 17.6 points per game.
He has a history under the Shanahan/Kubiak offensive scheme that head coach Kevin Stefanski is potentially looking to bring to the Browns as Scangarello worked under Kyle Shanahan in both Atlanta and San Francisco.
Scangarello was the Falcons offensive quality control coach in 2015 and then was the 49ers quarterbacks coach in 2017 and 2018. His first venture in the NFL was back in 2009 with the Oakland Raiders as an offensive quality control/assistant quarterbacks coach.
The majority of his coaching career has been spent in the college ranks spending seven years at UC Davis, three years each at Idaho and Northern Arizona, two seasons at Millsaps and a season each at Carleton and Wagner working throughout those schools’ offensive staffs.
Scangarello has been the first confirmed interest to the Browns offensive coordinator search but there has been rumors about Stefanski being interested in San Francisco’s pass game coordinator Mike LaFleur and run game coordinator Mike McDaniel although Cleveland wouldn’t be officially allowed to hire either until the 49ers season is complete.
