According to Alex Marvez of the Sporting News, the Cleveland Browns are expected to hire Amos Jones as their new special teams coach.

Jones has had a long-time coaching background, but his NFL gigs began in 2007 with the Pittsburgh Steelers, working with their special teams units through 2012. In 2013, he was hired as the Arizona Cardinals’ special teams coordinator. With Bruce Arians retiring, the rest of his staff was pretty much free to seek opportunities elsewhere.

This past season, Jones got to work with former Browns kicker Phil Dawson, who was 32-of-40 on field goals in 2017.
