Browns Announce Mike McDaniel as WR Coach, Wilbert Montgomery as RB Coach

Kyle Shanahan

The Browns have pretty much completed their offensive coaching staff, concluding with wide receivers coach Mike McDaniel.

The Cleveland Browns officially announced several additions to their offensive coaching staff, including George DeLeone as assistant offensive line coach, Richard Hightower as offensive quality control coach, Dowell Loggains as quarterbacks coach, Mike McDaniel as wide receivers coach, Andy Moeller as offensive line coach, and Wilbert Montgomery as running backs coach. Out of all the hirings, we've already covered DeLeone, Loggains, Moeller, and Montgomery over the past few weeks in our coaching StoryStream.

The big new addition to make note of is McDaniel, who replaces Scott Turner as wide receivers coach. Besides Josh Gordon last year, the Browns' wide receiver situation was a mess. Greg Little and Davone Bess dropped way too many passes, and no other receiver had a chance to make an impact.

McDaniel began his NFL career as a coaching intern with the Denver Broncos in 2005. He then became an offensive assistant with the Houston Texans from 2006-2008. From 2011-2013, he was an offensive assistant and then wide receivers coach for the Washington Redskins. Out of all the Browns' coaching hires on offense, McDaniel is one of the guys you can look at and say, "Kyle Shanahan played a hand in this hire," since his time with Houston and Washington coincided with when Shanahan was the offensive coordinator for those teams.

The other previously unreported addition is Hightower as offensive quality control coach. He fills the vacancy left by Shane Steichen, who joined the Chargers' staff recently. Hightower also has connections to Shanahan from both Houston and Washington. Hightower was with the Redskins over the past four years, serving as an assistant special teams coach and a defensive assistant.

The last person we'll highlight in Montgomery. Gil Brandt first reported about his hiring a week ago, but he was the running backs coach in Baltimore from 2008-2013. Montgomery also spent nearly a decade with the Rams, where he worked with Marshall Faulk.
