Cleveland Browns Hire Former Buffs Coach Embree As Assistant

CLEVELAND (AP) – Browns coach Rob Chudzinski has added assistants Brian Baker and Jon Embree to his staff.

Baker, who spent the past two seasons as defensive line coach in Dallas, will coach Cleveland’s outside linebackers. Embree, the former head coach at CU, will be in charge of tight ends.

Chudzinski previously worked with Baker in Carolina and praised his versatility. While he was with the Panthers, Baker helped develop defensive ends Julius Peppers and Charles Johnson. Baker spent three seasons coaching St. Louis’ defensive line before going to Carolina.

Embree coached the Buffaloes the past two years. He spent 17 years as a player and coach at the school. Embree coached Kansas City’s tight ends from 2006-08, working with perennial Pro Bowler Tony Gonzalez.

Embree spent 2010 coaching Washington’s tight ends before returning to Colorado.
