Kyle Shanahan to Coach the Falcons Offense

Kyle Shanahan, who resigned as Browns offensive coordinator with two years left on his contract, has agreed to become offensive coordinator of the Falcons, a league source confirmed to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Shanahan is expected to be paired with Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, who will be offered the Falcons head coach job after he faces the Patriots in the Super Bowl Feb. 1.

Quinn was a finalist for the Browns’ head coach vacancy last year, but they opted not to wait for him to play in the Super Bowl, and hired Mike Pettine instead.

A source said Quinn and Shanahan are extremely close, meaning Shanahan probably would’ve ended up in Cleveland last year even if Quinn had taken the job. Question is, would Shanahan have lasted longer here?
