The Cleveland Browns are reportedly interviewing James Campen of the Green Bay Packers for their vacant offensive line coaching position.

The news was first reported by ESPN’s Rob Demovsky:

Campen just completed his 15th season as a Packers coach. He worked as the assistant offensive line/quality control coach for two seasons before taking on the role of offensive line coach in 2007. He was promoted to the title of offense – run game coordinator/offensive line in 2018.

According to the Packers website:

In nine of Campen’s 11 seasons as offensive line coach, the Packers have ranked in the top 10 in the league in scoring. Green Bay finished in the top 10 in total offense in eight of those 11 seasons, highlighted by three of the top four single-season yardage marks in franchise history.

Campen has helped six linemen earn Pro Bowl recognition since 2010 (T Chad Clifton, C Scott Wells, G Josh Sitton, C Jeff Saturday, T David Bakhtiari, G T.J. Lang), the only team in the league to have six different members of the offensive line selected over that span. Campen has had at least one of his linemen named to the Pro Bowl in six of the last eight seasons (2010-12, 2014-16).

Campen was also part of the coaching staff that helped current Browns center J.C. Tretter make the transition from a college tackle to one of the league’s better centers after the Packer drafted Tretter in 2013.
