Former St. Louis Rams head coach Mike Martz is a candidate for the Cleveland Browns' offensive coordinator job.

The Browns exhaustive search for Kyle Shanahan's replacement could include more than a dozen candidates.

Martz has been out of the NFL since 2011 when he was play-caller of the Chicago Bears.

A primary focus of the Browns' search is finding a coach who has had success with young quarterbacks.

Martz guided the Rams' offense, then as offensive coordinator, to great heights including record-setting statistical output in 1999 when Kurt Warner, then a virtual unknown from the Arena Football League, stepped in for the injured Trent Green and won a Super Bowl.

Johnny Manziel, a first-round pick in 2014, is expected to compete for the starting job in 2015. The Browns have a decision to make on Brian Hoyer, who is a free agent, and would need to find a veteran if they allow Hoyer to test the open market.
