Cleveland Browns general manager Ray Farmer began the process creating his staff Tuesday with the hiring of Morocco Brown as vice president of player personnel, according to multiple reports.
Brown, who held the title of director of player personnel, interviewed in recent years for several front office positions only to get passed over. According to the Washington Post, he’s an up-and-coming NFL executive who proved his worth in signing free agents for the Washington Redskins.
With the Browns he’d be second in command of the football side of the organization, a promotion from Washington, an organization he’d been with since 2008.
Brown’s hiring isn’t the only front office change. The Browns released two college scouts – Matt Manocherian and Brent Blaylock – Tuesday, according to reports.
