The Browns hired Kevin O’Connell as QB coach today. His skills include “having previously worked with Johnny Manziel” and “being teammates with Brian Hoyer once upon a time.” In all seriousness, he used to work in San Diego and has some positive press from them. Cleveland also hired Joker Phillips as wide receiver coach a few days ago. “Joker” seems an apt description for Cleveland’s receiving corps.
Youth is the major theme in most of these coaching hires; I can only hope that they will be able to relate to Johnny Football and convince him how to do things that are less stupid.
