Former Eagles and Packers head coach Ray Rhodes will continue his 30-year coaching career in Cleveland.
The Browns announced a slew of coaching hires, including Rhodes as a senior assistant/defense. He served in similar capacity in Houston over the last three years.
Cleveland also announced they retained the following coaches from Eric Mangini’s staff: Gary Brown (running backs), Steve Hagen (tight ends), Jerome Henderson (defensive backs), Kent Johnston (strength and conditioning), Rick Lyle (assistant strength and conditioning), Luke Steckel (assistant to the head coach) and George Warhop (offensive line).
In addition to Rhodes, the team also added Chris Beake (offensive assistant), Chuck Bullough (defensive assistant), and Shawn Mennenga (special teams assistant). Keith Gilbertson will also be a senior offensive assistant after serving as the Browns’ Director of Pro Personnel.
In all, coach Pat Shurmur will have a 19 man coaching staff, including nine from Mangini’s staff. It’s a little surprising there wasn’t even more turnover.
