The Cleveland Browns have hire former University of Colorado Jon Embree as their tight ends coach, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.
Embree is a former St. Louis Rams TE 1987-88 and spent the last two seasons as head coach of the Buffaloes, going a dismal 4-21 in that span. He was fired by the school in November after going 1-11 in 2012.
So it's back to the NFL, where he tight ends coach for the Redskins in 2010 and for the Chiefs from 2006-08.
"Jon is an outstanding football coach, and he has proven himself at the collegiate and NFL levels," new head coach Rob Chudzinski said.
"He has coached some outstanding players in this league, and has also been instrumental in developing players in college who have gone on to productive pro careers. We believe he can have a great impact on our tight ends, and I look forward to working with him."
The team has also hired Brian Baker to coach outside linebackers.
"Brian's addition to our staff gives us another coach with extensive NFL experience," Chudzinski said. "His players have consistently achieved a great deal of success and he has coached numerous Pro Bowl-caliber players. He has coached in several defensive schemes in his career and that versatility will be valuable as he works with Ray (Horton) and the rest of our defensive staff."
