The Cleveland Browns hired Oakland Raiders quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo as their offensive coordinator, according to reports Wednesday.

DeFilippo, 36, has never been a coordinator or play-caller in the NFL. He has spent the past three seasons with Oakland, grooming rookie quarterback Derek Carr, who passed for 3,270 yards and 21 touchdowns in 2014.

DeFilippo will replace Kyle Shanahan, who asked out of his contract after one season.

DeFilippo worked with Browns head coach Mike Pettine in 2009 when both were with the New York Jets. DeFilippo was assistant quarterbacks coach that year and Pettine was defensive coordinator.

Prior to rejoining the Raiders in 2012, DeFilippo coached at San Jose State from 2010-11, serving as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2011, and QBs coach in 2010.
