Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren said he wanted to find a head coach that had ties to him and general manager Tom Heckert.

He found his man, in Pat Shurmur.

The 45-year-old has never been a head coach at any level.

Shurmur received a four-year deal worth about $11.25 million. He had been the offensive coordinator of the St. Louis Rams the past two seasons.

Before St. Louis, Shurmur spent 10 years in Philadelphia as an assistant under Andy Reid, one of Holmgren’s most successful coaching protege’s.

2010 NFL DRAFT: Browns pick CB Joe Haden of the Florida Gators

Cornerback Joe Haden had very slow times in the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine but the Cleveland Browns liked him so much that they knew he was good enough to be a number 1 pick.

Unable to move up in the first round after inquiring about the number 1 overall pick, Cleveland selected Haden, a two-time All-American at Florida, with the number 7 selection in Thursday’s first round.

Haden is the first player taken by Cleveland’s new management of general manager Tom Heckert and Browns president Mike Holmgren, who was brought in to restore and rebuild one of the NFL’s oldest franchises.

The 5’10 193-pound Haden was so elated when he received the phone call in New York from the Browns, he wept.

Bothered by a bad lower back that he aggravated while lifting weights, Haden was timed in Indianapolis as slow as 4.57 seconds- not exactly NFL cornerback material. But Cleveland liked him anyway. His times improved dramatically at the University of Florida Gators pro day.
