Joe Cullen has been hired as the Browns’ new defensive line coach, Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley told reporters today during Senior Bowl practices in Mobile, Ala.

The Florida-Times Union first reported the news.

Browns coach Rob Chudzinski reportedly interviewed Cullen, 45, last week. He replaces Dwaine Board, who served as the Browns’ defensive line coach for the past two seasons.

Cullen joined the Jaguars in 2010. He previously coached the Detroit Lions’ defensive line from 2006-08. Cullen also has 17 seasons of college coaching experience.

Ray Horton was named the Browns’ new defensive coordinator on Friday. He employed a 3-4 scheme during the past two seasons as the defensive coordinator of the Arizona Cardinals. The Browns used a 4-3 system the past two years under the guidance of Horton’s predecessor, defensive coordinator Dick Jauron.

The Browns still have openings for the following position coaches: quarterbacks, running backs, tight ends, linebackers and defensive backs.

Introduction set

New Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner and Chudzinski are scheduled to address the media at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the team's headquarters in Berea.
