Which Coaching Positions Do the Cleveland Browns Still Need to Fill?


The Cleveland Browns have already hired (or retained) a fair amount of their assistant coaches under new head coach Rob Chudzinski, but there should be a handful of jobs that are still available. This post will summarize which positions have been filled to date, and which positions we are projecting to still be available (some coaches opt not to fill every position -- for example, Norv Turner will also serve as the team's quarterbacks coach).

Head Coach: Rob Chudzinski


Offensive Coordinator: Norv Turner
Quarterbacks: Norv Turner
Running Backs: John Settle
Wide Receivers: Scott Turner
Tight Ends: Jon Embree
Offensive Line: George Warhop
Offensive Line: Mike Sullivan
Offensive Quality Control: Shane Steichen


Defensive Coordinator: Ray Horton
Defensive Line: Joe Cullen
Linebackers: (not filled)
Outside Linebackers: Brian Baker
Defensive Backs: Louie Cioffi
Assistant Defensive Backs: Bobby Babich
Defensive Quality Control: Daron Roberts

Special Teams

Special Teams: Chris Tabor
Special Teams Assistant: Shawn Mennenga

Strength and Conditioning

Strength and Conditioning: Brad Roll
Assistant Strength and Conditioning: Chris DiSanto


The primary roles that the Browns definitely need to field include a running backs coach and a linebackers coach. There is a chance that a few other assistants, such as an assistant special teams coach or assistant strength and conditioning coach, could come on board. Roberts' role is unclear right now, but he'll be a defensive assistant of some sort and will reportedly start work on Monday.

Last year's running backs coach, Gary Brown, has not been hired elsewhere, but is unlikely to return. Billy Davis has been the Browns' linebackers coach for the past two years. Funny enough, he was actually the Cardinals' defensive coordinator from 2009-2010 before being fired in favor of...Ray Horton. It seems unlikely that he'll remain with the Browns, and there are rumblings that the Eagles are interested in making him their defensive coordinator.
