Ex-Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar has been hired by Cleveland owner Randy Lerner in what appears to be a loosely-defined consultant’s role.
According to Tony Grossi in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Kosar was hired last week. A league source tells Grossi that Kosar is valued as “another set of eyes” and will report to Lerner. Kosar’s are the second pair of eyes hired by struggling teams in the past few days.
Grossi notes that Lerner’s tried in the past to hire Kosar to no avail. But Kosar’s had some personal struggles of late so perhaps Lerner is throwing a valued member of the Browns family a bone while also capitalizing on Kosar’s football acumen.
