It’s no secret the Cleveland Browns are going out and getting the best out of their players.
The team is going out to win, and that includes moving on from the players who weren’t getting it.
On Thursday, the team announced the signing of former Patriots quarterback Kevin O. O’Donnell as its vice president of football operations.
O`Donnell spent the last two seasons as the Patriots offensive coordinator, working under Bill Belichick.
O�Donnell is a big-game veteran who was a part of Belichick’s winningest team ever and won the Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2006.
He has a long track record as an offensive coordinator in New England, and his success is well-documented.
He is known for using a 4-3 defense, but he also used a 3-4 front.
O”Donnell was a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh and a three-time All-American who won three championships in college.
He spent his first two seasons coaching quarterbacks for the Steelers, who signed him to a five-year deal in 2011.
His first NFL job was with the Baltimore Ravens, and the next was with Houston Texans in 2012.
After that, he spent two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, where he coached their defense.
In 2015, O’Brien became the Ravens’ head coach.
His team went 11-5, and in his first year as the Ravens head coach, the Ravens reached the playoffs for the first time since 2007.
It was the first playoff appearance in franchise history.
In 2016, he became the first head coach in NFL history to be fired in the first week of the season.
In 2017, he led the Ravens to a 10-6 season and made the playoffs again.
He had a successful career in Houston, where O’Malley also played.
His wife is an NFL Hall of Famer, as well.
