Browns name 3 assistants
CLEVELAND -- New Browns coach Rob Chudzinski has hired Joe Cullen as his defensive line coach, Louie Cioffi to coach the defensive backs and Shane Steichen as offensive quality control coach.
Cullen spent the past three seasons with Jacksonville. Before joining the Jaguars, Cullen was at Idaho State and spent three seasons (2006-08) with the Detroit Lions.
Cioffi, who has 18 years of NFL experience to the Browns staff, was with Arizona the past two seasons. He played a pivotal role in the development of cornerback Patrick Peterson, a first-round pick in 2011 who had seven interceptions and led the league with five fumble recoveries last season.
Steichen joins the Browns after spending two seasons as a defensive assistant in San Diego.
