The Cleveland Browns hired Kyle Shanahan as offensive coordinator, Fox Sports reported Saturday.

Shanahan most recently served in the same role with the Washington Redskins until he was fired at the end of the regular season, along with his father, Mike Shanahan, who was the head coach.

Kyle Shanahan found success as the Houston Texans' offensive coordinator in 2008-09, but had mixed results in the same role for the Redskins during the last four seasons.

He was a candidate for other openings, including the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins.

NFL.com reported Thursday that former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains was hired by the Browns, but it was unclear if he would be named offensive coordinator or quarterbacks coach. The Browns also interviewed Oakland Raiders quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo.

The Browns recently hired Mike Pettine as head coach to replace Rob Chudzinski, who was fired after one season.
