According to Mike Klis of 9news, the Cleveland Browns have interviewed Brock Olivo for their special teams coordinator vacancy. Earlier in the week, Chris Tabor left the role to join the Chicago Bears in the same capacity after having been with the club since 2011.

Olivo was an assistant special teams coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2014-2016 before becoming the Denver Broncos’ special teams coordinator in 2017. He was fired after just one season in the role.

Broncos fans were absolutely finished with Olivo after a 41-16 loss to the Patriots in November. That game saw the Broncos:

  • Muff a punt return (Patriots recovered)
  • Allow a 103-yard kickoff return for a touchdown
  • Get a punt blocked by the Patriots
  • Have 12 men on the field during a 4th-and-5, allowing New England to have an automatic first down

Boy, and I didn’t think anyone could out-do Tabor. Sign him up!
