Browns to hire Wilks and Monken, report says

Cleveland Browns reportedly hire new defensive offensive coordinators

Cleveland Browns reportedly hire new defensive offensive coordinators

But newly-hired head coach Freddie Kitchens plans on changing the team's fortunes.

Some of the names were revealed before the Browns made their official announcement on Monday.

Former Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken is reportedly joining Freddie Kitchens's Browns staff as its new OC, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He has a deep defensive background, spending 12 years as a secondary coach before becoming Carolina's coordinator in 2017.

The BBC reported that the animals became stuck in Roddickton-Bide Arm after the town's bay and surrounding water froze over. An RCMP spokesperson said it appears two of the animals were struck by a vehicle on Tuesday night.

Wilks joins the Browns after a season spent as head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, while Priefer signs on after serving eight seasons as special teams coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings.

Many of them have ties to Ohio, including Tettleton, who was a quarterback at Ohio University, and Dray, who played tight end for the Browns.

After a flurry of interviews for National Football League head coaching gigs and offensive coordinator roles, it seems recently-departed Bucs playcaller Todd Monken ironically will be landing as the OC for a Bruce Arians disciple. Priefer was born in Cleveland. Offensive line coach Josh Henson and receivers coach Kasey Dunn represent internal options, but either's promotion to offensive coordinator would still require Gundy to hire a quarterbacks coach.
