Browns hire Andy Moeller as Offensive Line Coach per multiple reports


According to multiple reports, the Cleveland Browns have found their offensive line coach in former Baltimore Ravens assistant Andy Moeller.  The son of former Michigan head coach Gary Moeller and a Wolverine linebacker himself, Moeller was able to help the Ravens get to the Super Bowl this past year as the offensive line coach the past three seasons.

Moeller has 22 total years of experience coaching offensive linemen with the past six with the Ravens; three as the assistant offensive line coach and three as the top offensive line coach.  Before he got to Baltimore, Moeller’s experience is entirely in college in a number of different systems.  Moeller spent six years as the offensive line coach at Army in West Point, three years at Missouri, and seven years in Ann Arbor.

If the Browns opt to move Mitchell Schwartz inside to guard, which might be more likely with the offensive assistant hirings they have made, Michael Oher and Eugene Monroe could be free agent targets for the Browns for right tackle.   Monroe just got to Baltimore this past season, but both are familiar with how Moeller operates so they could be natural targets to fill that spot.  Moeller and Paul Kruger could work to recruit them to Cleveland.

Along with Chuck Driesbach, Moeller is one of the most veteran coaches on the staff.  Moeller will turn 50 this year.  It is also worth noting that Moeller does have a DUI in his past.
