1:46pm: The Browns will open the season with general manager Ray Farmer serving a four-game suspension, and the club announced today that a member of the coaching staff will be suspended as well. In a statement, the Browns indicated that offensive line coach Andy Moeller has been suspended indefinitely, effective immediately (Twitter link via Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal).
“Over the weekend, Andy was involved in an incident, involving allegations that we take very seriously,” the Browns said in their statement. “We have followed our internal protocol, determining that right now it is best for the team and for Andy to take time away from the organization to focus on his personal matters.”
While the details of the incident involving Moeller aren’t clear, he was previously suspended in 2011 when he was on the Ravens’ coaching staff, after he was found guilty of driving under the influence.
