The changing of the guard continued for the Washington Redskins yesterday, as new coach Norv Turner hired five assistants and a member of former coach Richie Petitbon's staff found a new job.
Rod Dowhower, who was the Redskins' offensive coordinator under Petitbon, became the quarterbacks coach of the Cleveland Browns under coach Bill Belichick.
Meanwhile, Turner hired former Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Ron Lynn and two members of his Bengals staff, linebackers coach Mike Haluchak and defensive line coach Bob Karmelowicz. He also hired two members of the Phoenix Cardinals staff, special teams coach Pete Rodriguez and running backs coach Bobby Jackson.
Also, Cam Cameron, quarterbacks and receivers coach at Michigan, told Knight-Ridder News Service he will be the receivers coach.
Turner is expected to keep offensive line coach Jim Hanifan, secondary coach Emmitt Thomas, tight ends coach Russ Grimm and Charley Taylor, who's in charge of research and development.
