The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know including another SEC coach leaving his position to join Freddie Kitchens’ staff
Easily the most impressive thing about the Cleveland Browns new coaching staff is the fact that they are adding assistants who are in demand. Offensive coordinator Todd Monken and defensive coordinator Steve Wilks are both very well respected for their roles.
Mike Priefer was offered a contract by a couple of teas, while also being welcomed back by the Minnesota Vikings. He chose to spurn them all in favor of the Browns.
Others like Tosh Lupoi left their SEC school to become an assistant with the Browns, and that has happened again as the Tennessee Volunteers will be saying goodbye to John Lilly who joins the Browns as a tight ends coach.

Cleveland Browns News
"“After serving one season as an analyst for Tennessee, John Lilly is expected to leave Knoxville for the Cleveland Browns. This news was first reported by Alex Marvez of SiriusXM NFL Radio. Lilly will serve as tight ends coach in Cleveland, per Marvez. This is the same position Lilly held for the Los Angeles Rams in 2016.”"
Kitchens has done a great job assembling his staff. He has a great friendship with Jeremy Pruitt, who he surely spoke with about this hire. Again, this feels like a win for the Browns staff.
"“Former Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Al Holcomb has been hired by the Cleveland Browns as the run-game coordinator and linebackers coach, reports NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.”"
Holcomb worked alongside Steve Wilks last season and rejoins his former boss. Wilks will serve as the defensive coordinator for the Browns and is bringing on people he knows as well.
It suddenly feels cool to be a Browns quarterback as Baker Mayfield has become a star. He now has a late night talk show appearance, which included him being blindfolded and playing ‘Nuzlle Whaaa?’ with James Corden.
Dan Justik breaks down each assistant hired by the Browns and discusses whether they can use their previous experiences to bring in some free agent talent to help Cleveland take their next step.
