CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – Former Cleveland Browns coach Pat Shurmur has begun to look for new work.

Shurmur is interviewing Monday with the Carolina Panthers for their offensive coordinator position which was vacated by new Browns coach Rob Chudzinski the Charlotte Observer reported.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said in a statement that “there’s no timetable” to name Chudzinski’s replacement.

“We wish Chud the very best and appreciate the great job he did here in laying a foundation for our offense,” Rivera said. “We are in the process of filling staff positions now and will continue to work through that in the coming days. Our goal is to identify the best candidates.”

Shurmur, who went 9-23 in 2 years as head coach of the Browns, was fired along with general manager Tom Heckert on Dec. 31.

Heckert backed out of a scheduled interview with the N.Y. Jets, who are still searching for a general manager after firing Mike Tannenbaum while deciding to retain coach Rex Ryan.
