The Cleveland Browns' tradition of change continues, as a team source told ESPN.com Thursday that offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains will not return next season.
Shanahan resigned and Loggains was fired, according to a league source.
Sources familiar with the situation said the split was caused because the pair did not see eye to eye with the front office about quarterback Johnny Manziel. The front office wants Manziel to be the starter, and the source said the coaches do not believe they can win with him.
Shanahan felt the decision to start Manziel was forced on the coaching staff, and that the yearlong insistence to play him when he wasn't ready wore on Shanahan, the team source said.
It's interesting to hear that Manziel's future was the reason for the divorce. Despite the Browns' offensive struggles down the stretch, Shanahan is a hot name around the league and won't have a problem finding employment for next season.
