Browns Lose Defensive Backs Coach Louie Cioffi to Titans

Another veteran defensive coach has departed the Cleveland Browns' staff.

The Tennessee Titans announced that another Cleveland Browns defensive coach is joining their staff: this time, it's defensive backs coach Louie Cioffi.

It's not a surprise to see Cioffi follow defensive coordinator Ray Horton to the Titans at this stage of his career. Horton had brought Cioffi over from the Arizona Cardinals when he came to Cleveland, so this will be the third consecutive stint that Cioffi has served under Horton as a defensive backs coach. The Browns' secondary was stable in 2013, with Joe Haden and T.J. Ward both being named All-Pros, Buster Skrine improving as a starter, and Tashaun Gipson leading the team in interceptions.
