CLEVELAND - Eric Mangini is rounding up the old gang from New England to coach the Cleveland Browns.
Mangini, who took over in Cleveland only a week after being fired by the New York Jets, has hired Brian Daboll as his
offensive coordinator, Rob Ryan as defensive coordinator, and Brad Seely as special teams coach.
All four previously worked together with the Patriots from 2000 to 2003.
Daboll was Mangini's quarterbacks coach in New York the past two seasons.
Ryan came over after five seasons as Oakland's defensive coordinator and Seely was the Patriots' special teams coach for the past 10 seasons.
"I am extremely pleased to bring three quality people in Brian, Rob, and Brad to our coaching staff and to the Cleveland Browns organization," Mangini said in a statement. "I know firsthand that all three are very experienced, talented and dedicated coaches who share the same team-first vision and are passionate towards our goal of bringing an NFL championship to Cleveland."
