Jon Embree Returning To The NFL

Doug Pensinger

The Cleveland Browns have hired Embree to coach tight ends.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that Jon Embree has been hired by the Cleveland Browns to coach the tight end position.

Embree, a former tight end for the Rams in 1987-88, spent the past two seasons as head coach of the Buffaloes, where he went 4-21, including 1-11 in 2012 before being dismissed in November.

Prior to that, Embree was tight ends coach of the Redskins in 2010 and the Chiefs from 2006-08.

Embree also spent three seasons as an assistant at UCLA and 10 at Colorado, his alma mater. He takes over a position that includes Jordan Cameron, Alex Smith and Ben Watson, who will become a free agent on March 12.

I'm glad to see Embree land on his feet and find a good spot in the NFL. The current Browns roster includes Ben Watson, Jordan Cameron (second year player out of USC) and Brad Smelley, a rookie from Alabama. Certainly not a ton of talent to work with at this point. Hopefully this puts to rest what become an ugly divorce from the Buffaloes and everyone can move on for the best.
