Chris Palmer

Chris Palmer

Chris Palmer had been the offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1998 when he was hired as the first coach of the "New" Browns. He was highly touted as a brilliant offensive mind, as the Jag's O was unstoppable at times, especially in the 63 point playoff preformance against the Dolphins in the previous year. Palmer's first Browns team went an understandable 2-14 as there was a lack of talent and depth. The next year, the Browns started off an impressive 2-1, but finished a dismal 1-12 as injuries plagued them all year. Although it is rumored that Palmer got fired for claiming that the team could only muster 6 victories in 2002, a more likely reason is the standard that Carolina and Jacksonville set for expansion teams, coupled with the total lack of offense in 2001. Palmer was replaced with Butch Davis
