Browns to interview Texans’ QB coach Jerrod Johnson for vacant OC job

The search for a new offensive coordinator in Cleveland will continue this week as Houston Texans quarterbacks coach Jerrod Johnson comes to town for an interview.

This move would make sense as Johnson has played a part in rookie quarterback CJ Stroud’s success in Houston this year. He has worked closely with offensive coordinator Bobby Slowik who has completely turned around the Texans offense this year. When you look at the type of offense the Texans run you see the same things the Browns want to do with Deshaun Watson in 2024.

Johnson started his coaching career, after bouncing from team to team as a quarterback, with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. He worked with DeMeco Ryans in San Fran which led to his hire this year in Houston. He also spent time with Kevin O’Connell on his staff with the Minnesota Vikings.

With the candidate and interview list growing by the day, it will be interesting to see who Kevin Stefanski ultimately adds to his staff.
