Browns Hire Assistants to Coach Defensive Line, Linebackers, And Receivers

In addition to bringing former Miami Hurricanes offensive coordinator Mark Whipple aboard as their quarterbacks coach yesterday, the Cleveland Browns also hired three other assistant coaches.

Bill Davis was hired as the team’s linebackers coach. He spent last season as the defensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals and reportedly interviewed with Cleveland before the hiring of Dick Jauron.

Dwaine Board was named the Browns’ new defensive line coach. He was with the Oakland Raiders last year as their defensive line coach, and before that spent six seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.

Mike Wilson spent the 2009-10 seasons as the wide receivers coach of the Las Vegas Locomotives of the UFL, according to the Plain Dealer. Prior to that, he was tight ends and receivers coach for the Cardinals.
