The Cleveland Browns announced today that they have hired Chuck Kyle, the head coach of the St. Ignatius football team, as a "youth football advisor." This position was recently created by the team and will serve to further the team's "long-standing dedication to youth and high school football in Ohio."
Kyle's current role as a faculty member and football coach at St. Ignatius will not change. The announcement states that Kyle will "expand his involvement with the Browns’ youth and high school football initiatives as part of the team's mission to provide opportunities for young athletes to play football and enhance safety for all participants and coaches."
"We are fortunate to add a Hall of Fame-caliber coach and individual in Chuck Kyle, who is one of Ohio’s most respected coaches due to his fervent commitment to his players, coaches and improving the game, as much as his success on the field," said Dee and Jimmy Haslam. "Coach Kyle’s expertise, connections and reputation across the country will offer the Browns special insight and opportunities as we strive to advance youth and high school football and enhance player safety throughout the game."
The team will introduce Kyle during Thursday's 2 PM groundbreaking event at Cleveland Metropolitan School District's Roye Kidd Field (John F. Kennedy High School). If you recall, Roye Kidd Field is one of the CMSD fields that the Browns are providing synthetic turf for.
