The Browns have hired Kevin O’Connell to be their quarterbacks coach and Kurt Roper as a senior offensive assistant, reports Alex Marvez of Fox Sports 1 (via Twitter).
O’Connell had been a rumored target of the Browns earlier this week. He is a former NFL quarterback, playing for five different teams between 2008 and 2012. He was drafted by the Patriots in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft, out of San Diego State University. He was waived, claimed by the Lions, and traded to the Jets where he spent the 2009 season. He also had short stints with the Dolphins and Chargers, spending time with the Jets again in between.
Roper was the offensive coordinator for the Florida Gators and also spent some time on the coaching staff of Duke University, according to Marvez (via Twitter).
With these two hires, the Browns’ offensive staff is complete, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN (via Twitter).
