According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, head coach Hue Jackson has decided to shift the roles of two assistant coaches on offense and is leaning toward not replacing Pep Hamilton this offseason. Cabot says that Jackson is “so comfortable with Gregg Williams running the defense that [he thinks it’ll allow him to focus on the offense more].”
Hamilton was also the Browns’ quarterbacks coach last year, though, so to take on that role, Jackson is changing the job titles of two assistants: Greg Seamon and Mark Hutson.
Seamon was Cleveland’s tight ends coach in 2016, but when Jackson was a college quarterback in the 1980s, he was his offensive coordinator. Therefore, Jackson feels comfortable with transitioning Seamon to being the team’s quarterbacks coach. Hutson was Cleveland’s assistant offensive line coach last year. They changed offensive line coaches this offseason, but Hutson has three years of experience as a tight ends coach with the Raiders. That’ll be his new role in Cleveland.
