Mike Holmgren inched closer to declaring Colt McCoy as the Browns’ No. 1 quarterback.
In an interview this week on ESPN Chicago, the Browns’ president alluded to McCoy while explaining why he hired Pat Shurmur as head coach.
“I hired Pat because I think we have a good young quarterback,” Holmgren said, “and I wanted an offensive-minded head coach. It pretty much boiled down to that. And, I wanted one familiar with the system I was familiar with.”
