The OBR radio program is probably where Browns fans first heard the name of Alfredo Roberts, the team's new tight ends coach, as Jeff Schudel related his hiring at the top of the show at 9PM.
Later in the broadcast, Scout.com's Adam Caplan reported that the Browns will interview two NFL assistants tomorrow for the team's vacant offensive coaching position. The job became available when Jeff Davidson agreed to become the new offensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers - a development we told you was in the offing quite a while back.
The two assistants are Mike Maser, recently of the Carolina Panthers, and Steve Loney, who was relieved today in Arizona when Russ Grimm joined the staff of that ballclub.
The 59-year-old Maser has worked his way up as a coach in the college and professional ranks, starting with Marshall in 1973, and graduating to the NFL as Jacksonville's line coach from 1995-2002. He then joined the Panthers staff and was with them from 2003 until this year.
Loney was moved aside for Grimm, but is also an experienced coach, and has bounced between the NFL and top colleges since 1993 after starting his coaching career with Missouri Western in 1975. Loney has had two stops with the Cardinals, as well as stints with the Vikings, Iowa State, and the University of Minnesota.
