INDEPENDENCE-- The Browns coaching staff is finally complete.
With Super Bowl 50 complete and the 2015-2016 NFL season in the rearview mirror, Cleveland added eight assistants to their staff including Rock Cartwright (offensive quality control), Louie Cioffi (defensive backs), Ken Delgado (assistant defensive line), Johnny Holland (inside linebackers), Cannon Matthews (assistant defensive backs), Robert Nunn (defensive line), Eric Sanders (defensive quality control) and Ryan Slowik (outside linebackers).
Prior to Monday's moves, the Browns added Hue Jackson (head coach) Pep Hamilton (associate head coach, offense), Ray Horton (defensive coordinator), Al Saunders (senior offensive assistant), Kirby Wilson (running game coordinator), Hal Hunter (offensive line), Mark Hutson (assistant offensive line), Greg Seamon (tight ends) and Bob Saunders (offensive quality control), Chris Tabor (special teams), Shawn Mennenga (special teams assistant) and Stan Watson (special teams quality control) to the staff earlier this offseason.
Overall, the Browns have 20 coaches on staff and each of those 20 excites Jackson.
“When I look at the whole makeup of our staff, I am really excited about the men who have come here to Cleveland to help assist this organization be the best that it can be,” Jackson said. “I think when you look at our staff we have a very good mix of old and young, experience and inexperience, and we have the potential to keep growing. We are going to chase greatness together and that is what this is all about.”
With the staff in place, the Browns will now set their sights on the 2016 NFL Combine, which takes place from February 23 through February 29, before the NFL Draft that will begin on April 28 in Chicago.
