CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Browns hired former Miami offensive coordinator Mark Whipple as their quarterbacks coach on Monday.

Whipple spent the past two seasons with the Hurricanes, but was fired when the school dismissed Randy Shannon before the end of last season. Earlier this month, Whipple nearly received Connecticut’s top job, which went to former Syracuse coach Paul Pasqualoni instead.

The Browns made a formal announcement about Whipple on Monday night. They also announced the additions of Dwaine Board (defensive line), Bill Davis (linebackers), and Mike Wilson (wide receivers) to the staff.

Before Miami, Whipple was an offensive assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008. He also spent three seasons (2004-06) as quarterbacks coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It’s still not known if new Browns coach Pat Shurmur intends to hire an offensive coordinator. At his introductory news conference, Shurmur, St. Louis’ offensive coordinator the past two seasons, said he plans to call plays next season.
