Comparing the Number of People on the Browns' Coaching Staff to the Rest of the NFL

Jason Miller

Thanks to some handy data-gathering by our friends over at Bleeding Green Nation, we can compare how large the Cleveland Browns' coaching staff is to the rest of the NFL. The data first includes the size of every team's 2013 coaching staff, along with the record the team finished with. As the simple study concludes, "there doesn't seem to be a strong correlation [between number of coaches and team record]; there are some playoff teams at the top, middle, and very bottom."

Last year, the Browns had 20 coaches on Rob Chudzinski's staff and finished with a record of 4-12. In 2014, under head coach Mike Pettine, there are 22 coaches on the staff (there were 21 coaches up until a couple of weeks ago, when the team hired assistant defensive backs coach Aaron Glenn). The average size of a coaching staff in the NFL contains 20-21 coaches. Here are how the Browns compare to the largest, smallest, and division-rival coaching staffs:

  • The Eagles, Seahawks, and Ravens lead the NFL with 25 coaches on their staff.
  • The Browns have 22 coaches on their staff.
  • The Bengals have 18 coaches on their staff.
  • The Steelers have 16 coaches on their staff, which is the fewest in the NFL.
