Browns Name Chris Tabor Their New Special Teams Coordinator

A few days after Brad Seely was hired by the San Francisco 49ers, the Cleveland Browns found their new special teams coordinator. The team named Chris Tabor their new special teams coordinator. Tabor's resume includes being the assistant special teams coordinator for the Chicago Bears the past three seasons. Given the Bears' success with Devin Hester in the return game, the hire at least sounds somewhat compelling.

"I believe that Chris is one of the up and coming special teams coaches in this league," said Browns head coach Pat Shurmur. "He is smart, enthusiastic and has a true passion for this area of the game.  In Chris’ three years with the Bears, they consistently boasted one of the best special teams groups in the league, in just about every facet.  Having faced them in 2008 and 2009, I know what a challenge it was to go up against their unit.  He will be a valuable addition to our coaching staff."

The rest of Tabor's coaching experience came at the collegiate level. This will certainly be another wait-and-see hire considering you can't get much better productivity than Seely had, but I welcome Tabor to the Browns nonetheless!
