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.
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.
