The Cleveland Browns are rounding out their defensive coaching staff. Wednesday night, Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports reported that Alabama defensive coordinator Tosh Lupoi is heading to the NFL to coach Cleveland’s defensive line.

Lupoi would be replacing former defensive line coach Clyde Simmons, a coach who has a good reputation around the NFL. Lupoi had a great reputation for recruiting at the college level; how that translates to the NFL level remains to be seen.

What do you think, Browns fans? Are you excited about the prospect of Lupoi joining the Browns’ coaching staff?
