Browns Hire Ron Hill in Personnel Department, Mike Hagen as Area Scout

Jason Miller

According to ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi, Cleveland Browns GM Ray Farmer has added another member to his personnel department in Ron Hill. Hill's position has not officially been announced by the team, but he was the vice president of football operations and vice president of player personnel for the Atlanta Falcons a long time ago. In fact, in 2002, Grossi says that Hill was the person who helped get Farmer his first opportunity in the NFL as a scout.

Farmer hit another bulls-eye when he added long-time NFL personnel executive Ron Hill to his player personnel staff. Hill has 35 years experience in scouting, going back to the Dallas Cowboys under Gil Brandt in 1979. Hill most recently held a position in the NFL office and also organized the regional combines for draft-eligible players not invited to the NFL Combine.

Also, InsideTheLeague reported that the Browns have hired Mike Hagen as an area scout:

Hagen has been involved with scouting for NFL teams since 1981. His stints in Atlanta and Kansas City overlapped with Farmer's tenures with both teams, so there's a good chance they've had a previous working relationship.
