Browns hire former Buffaloes’ coach

CLEVELAND – First-year, first-time Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski added assistants Brian Baker and Jon Embree to his staff.

Baker, who spent the last two seasons as defensive line coach in Dallas, will coach Cleveland’s outside linebackers.

Embree, the former head coach at Colorado, 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 last two years. He spent 17 years as a player and coach at the school.

Embree coached the Kansas City Chiefs’ tight ends from 2006 to 2008, working with perennial Pro Bowler Tony Gonzalez.

Embree spent 2010 coaching Washington’s tight ends before returning to the University of Colorado in Boulder. Embree was fired after two years at CU.
