Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal was first to report that the Cleveland Browns have hired Tim Hauck as their defensive backs coach.  The Browns were left without a DB coach when Jerome Henderson bolted for Dallas a couple weeks ago.  Henderson was one of the few Mangini assistants to be retained after Shurmur was brought on as head coach.

Hauck is a former NFL player and really made his mark from 1999-2001 when he played with the Philadelphia Eagles as a strong safety opposite Brian Dawkins.  His coaching career has taken him from the University in Montana, to UCLA 2008, to the Tennessee Titans in 2009.

A little trivia… When Michael Irvin was famously carted off to the applause of the sometimes-brutal Philadelphia Eagles fanbase, it was Hauck who delivered the hit.
