Browns hire Wilbert Montgomery, 10 other assistants


The Browns announced the hiring of 11 assistant coaches on Thursday, including former Ravens running backs coach Wilbert Montgomery.

Also hired were George DeLeone (assistant offensive line), Chris DiSanto (assistant strength and conditioning), Richard Hightower (offensive quality control), Dowell Loggains (quarterbacks), Derik Keyes (assistant strength and conditioning), Mike McDaniel (wide receivers), Andy Moeller (offensive line), Paul Ricci (strength and conditioning), Tony Tuioti (defensive quality control) and Anthony Weaver (defensive line).

An Eagles tailback from 1977 through 1984, Montgomery was the Ravens’ running backs coach the previous six seasons.

Montgomery isn’t the only former Ravens coach to land with Cleveland. Moeller was Baltimore’s offensive line coach from 2011 through 2013 and assistant offensive line coach from 2008 through 2010.

Weaver held the same position with the Bills in 2013, with McDaniel holding the same position with the Redskins.

The hiring of Loggains had been previously reported.
