Kyle Shanahan "enjoyed" working with Robert Griffin III

Kyle Shanahan believes that working with Robert Griffin III will help him with his new role at the Cleveland Browns.

New Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has admitted that he enjoyed his time with the Washington Redskins working with quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Shanahan, who worked under his father Mike Shanahan, said that he learned a lot about his role working with RG III and is hoping to take that experience into his new role.

"Robert and I had two years together," Shanahan told the Washington Post. "We did a lot of real good things together. I'm very proud of that first year.

"I think he arguably had one of the best years in NFL history for a rookie quarterback. I enjoyed coaching him. It challenged me, because I had to do some things that I hadn't done before, so I had to look at tape in a different way and try to put some different things in.

"I think that improved myself. I'm able to see the game a little differently. I was able to do some things with Robert that I hadn't been able to do with other quarterbacks, and that was really fun to do."

Shanahan was appointed to his new role on Monday.
