Browns name Aaron Glenn to coaching staff
BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns have named Aaron Glenn assistant defensive backs coach. Head Coach Mike Pettine made the announcement Sunday.
“Aaron Glenn fits the mold of what we are looking for to lead our players,” 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.”
Glenn enters his first year as an NFL coach following 15 seasons as a player and two years as a scout. He spent the past two seasons in the Jets’ front office, serving as a college area scout in 2013 after one season as a pro personnel scout.
Selected 12th overall in the first round by the Jets in 1994, Glenn started 176 of his 205 NFL games. Over a distinguished 15-year playing career, the three-time Pro Bowler spent time with five teams: The Jets (1994-2001), Houston (2002-04), Dallas (2005-06), Jacksonville (2007) and New Orleans (2008). Glenn recorded 661 career tackles, 41 interceptions and 167 passes defensed. He scored eight touchdowns, including six interception returns, a 96-yard kickoff return and a 104-yard return on a missed field goal.
Glenn earned a degree in business management from Texas A&M, where he was a two-time All-American.
