The Vikings announced the hiring of former Eagles, Browns and Rams center Hank Fraley as assistant offensive line coach on Monday.

Fraley played 11 NFL seasons and started 123 games. He had stints with the Eagles (2000-2005), Browns (2006-2009) and Rams (2010). The 36-year-old Fraley was offensive line coach at San Jose State in 2013.

In Minnesota, Fraley will work with offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, who was the Browns’ line coach (and later offensive coordinator) in 2006, Fraley’s first season with Cleveland.
