CLEVELAND (AP) — Ken Dorsey has control of Cleveland’s offense again.

The former Browns quarterback and ex-Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator has been hired by coach Kevin Stefanski as Cleveland’s offensive coordinator, a person familiar with the hiring told The Associated Press on Sunday.

Dorsey was fired by Buffalo after a poor showing in a loss to the Denver Broncos in November 2023. Buffalo’s offense was inconsistent throughout Dorsey’s second season in charge; following a 48-point outburst during a Week 4 win over the Dolphins, the Bills averaged just 20.5 points per game over the following six games before Dorsey’s ouster.

Bills name Joe Brady as full-time offensive coordinator

Dorsey, who joined the Bills organization as quarterbacks coach in 2019, took over as offensive coordinator in 2022 after Brian Daboll left to take the job as head coach of the New York Giants.

It’s not yet been decided if Dorsey will call plays in Cleveland, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the Browns have not made any of their new coaching hires public.

Stefanski fired coordinator Alex Van Pelt just days after the Browns were beaten 45-14 by the Houston Texans in the wild-card round. Van Pelt, who had been with Cleveland since 2020, declined a chance to stay with the club in another role.

Stefanski has called plays since taking over the Browns in 2020. He could relinquish those duties to Dorsey, who played for Cleveland from 2006-08 and is one of 37 quarterbacks to start for the franchise since 1999.

Stefanaki also interviewed Kellen Moore, who was hired by Philadelphia, along with Seattle offensive line coach Andy Dickerson, former Eagles offensive coordinator Brian Johnson and Texans quarterbacks coach Jerrod Johnson.

The 42-year-old Dorsey went 2-11 in 13 career NFL starts. He was 38-2 as a starter in college at Miami.
