The Browns have added longtime NFL assistant Joe Kim to their staff, ESPN’s Field Yates reported Thursday.

Kim’s Twitter bio says he’s an assistant strength and skill development coach with the Browns.

This is Kim’s third stint with his hometown team. He worked with the old Browns from 1992-95 as an assistant strength coach and pass-rush specialist in his first NFL job, and returned to the Browns in the same role when they returned to the league in 1999.

Kim is a 7th Dan Black Belt recognized by the World Taekwondo Federation, Kukkiwon and USA Taekwondo and is a former national taekwondo champion and Pan Am Games medalist. From 2001-12 he served as a pass rush consultant for various NFL teams. He’s been a strength and skill development coach in the last two seasons, in 2014 with the Bears and last season with the Redskins.
