As first reported by ESPN's Field Yates, the Cleveland Browns have added Joseph Kim to their staff:
The Browns have hired Joe Kim to their coaching staff. Kim has a martial arts background and is revered for his work with pass rushers.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) March 3, 2016
Although the team has not released an official statement on the hiring, Kim's Twitter profile has been updated to reflect his title: Assistant Strength/Skill Development Coach. According to Pro Football Talk, this is Kim's third stint with the Browns:
He worked with the old Browns from 1992-95 as an assistant strength coach and pass-rush specialist in his first NFL job, and returned to the Browns in the same role when they returned to the league in 1999.
Kim has previously been a pass rushing consultant for NFL teams, and last year, he was a strength and skill development coach for the Washington Redskins. It appears as though the Cleveland area is his hometown, though. Hopefully his martial arts background will whip guys like Barkevious Mingo and Nate Orchard into shape.
