Browns hire Dowell Loggains as quarterbacks coach

The Cleveland Browns have locked up another offensive assistant position under Mike Pettine.  Dowell Loggains, the former offensive coordinator of the Tennessee Titans will be Pettine’s quarterbacks coach.  That still leaves the question as to who will be calling the plays for this team, but Loggains has a strong reputations with quarterbacks, which is imperative for the Browns to be successful.

Loggains was a quarterback for the Arkansas Razorbacks as a player before going to work for former Razorback Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys as a scouting assistant in 2005.  He then spent the next eight years on the Titans’ staff.  First, he was a coaching administrative assistant for two seasons before becoming an offensive quality control coach for the next two years.  From 2010-2012, he became the quarterbacks coach before becoming the offensive coordinator this past year.

Loggains is 33, which fits in with the trend of young coaches who Pettine has hired.  This comes off as a strong hire for the team, but still leaves the question as to who will be calling the plays unanswered.  The success of the quarterback position is critical for the Browns to have any sustained success, but much will depend on the scheme and plays being called.

    Waiting so long to hire a HC, and now an OC is really going to kill the Browns preparation for free agency and the draft. This is the most important off season the Browns have had since 99 and they can’t afford to screw it up. It’s going to set the franchise back, again, for at least 5 years.

      How does it kill them for the draft or free agency? The scouting department and front office who does the work with that stuff has not gone anywhere. And there are 4 months to prepare for draft for coaches.
