Buccaneers Hire Former Browns Offensive Line Coach George Warhop

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

The Browns' longest-remaining assistant coach has departed.

Not all of the Cleveland Browns' assistants are headed to the same team, but three of them have decided to join Lovie Smith as assistants for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The newest departure involves offensive line coach George Warhop.

Warhop was the team's longest-remaining assistant coach, having been with the team since 2009 (five seasons). He was one of two assistant coaches who survived the previous coaching change; in fact, the Kansas City Chiefs were reportedly in serious negotiations with Warhop last year before Rob Chudzinski decided to retain him on the team's staff.

One of the things Jimmy Haslam touted last offseason was the offensive line being a strength of the team. Although the team had two Pro Bowlers in Joe Thomas and Alex Mack, you could say that the other three positions had struggles all year long. The biggest disappointment was the setback that right tackle Mitchell Schwartz had. The Browns surrounded way too many sacks in 2013, and the running game was pretty poor, no matter who was in the backfield.
