Joe Cullen Leaves Browns to Join the Buccaneers' Staff

Joe Robbins

The Browns have lost their first assistant coach after the firing of Rob Chudzinski.

It appears that the Cleveland Browns have lost their first assistant coach. Joe Cullen, who served as the Browns' defensive line coach in 2013 under defensive coordinator Ray Horton, has left to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to reports.

If you recall, Cullen was the coach who drove through a Wendy's drive-thru nude in 2006. He coached the Jacksonville Jaguars' defensive line from 2010-2012. With the Buccaneers, he will serve as an assistant under new head coach Lovie Smith and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier.

The Browns had tremendous depth on their defensive line this season, although the run defense declined a little bit after the season-ending injury to defensive end Desmond Bryant. It wouldn't be a surprise to see most, if not all, of the Browns' assistant coaches replaced next season. Horton is scheduled to interview for the Minnesota Vikings' head coaching vacancy soon.
