Rhodes, 60, brings more than 30 years of pro-coaching experience to Cleveland. He was a head coach in Philadelphia (1995-98) and Green Bay (1999).
Shurmur, who will serve as his own offensive coordinator, retained four position assistants who worked under Eric Mangini. The team said Gary Brown (running backs), Steve Hagen (tight ends), Jerome Henderson (defensive backs) and George Warhop (offensive line) will stay on staff.
