By Nate Ulrich Published: February 4, 2014

The Browns have hired Jimmy Raye as a senior offensive assistant and George DeLeone as an assistant offensive line coach, Alex Marvez of Fox Sports reported tonight.

The Browns have not announced the moves.

Raye, 67, held the same title with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the past two seasons.

Raye, who played for the Philadelphia Eagles in 1969, has spent 36 seasons coaching in the NFL. He worked as an offensive coordinator for several teams, most recently the San Francisco 49ers, who fired him after falling to 0-3 in 2010.

Raye's son, Jimmy Raye III, is the Indianapolis Colts' vice president of football operations.

DeLeone, 65, was the associate head coach at the University of Connecticut last season. He spent the previous two seasons serving as the Huskies’ offensive coordinator.

DeLeone has been a football coach for 40 seasons, including four in the NFL. He was the San Diego Chargers’ offensive line coach in 1997 and the Miami Dolphins’ tight ends coach from 2008-10.
