The Cleveland Browns confirmed the hiring of former Jets defensive back Aaron Glenn as a coach.
He leaves his former position as a Jets scout to join the Browns as an assistant defensive backs coach. A three-time Pro-Bowl selection, he spent eight seasons with the Jets, Houston Texans, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars and New Orleans Saints and owns 41 career interceptions.
“Aaron Glenn fits the mold of what we are looking for to lead our players,” coach Mike Pettine said. “He’s passionate, knowledgeable and relentless. His NFL experience and production, 205 games and 41 interceptions, gives him instant credibility in the room.”
He played 15 years in the NFL and has been a Jets scout since 2012 when Browns coach Mike Pettine served as defensive coordinator for New York.
