By the numbers: Get to know David Lee, the new Browns QB coach

The Browns have tapped David Lee as their quarterbacks coach.

Lee, who spent the past two seasons with the Buffalo Bills, will work with head coach Hue Jackson to get the most out of Cleveland's signal-callers.

Here's a look at Lee over the years:

42 — Lee brings 42 years of coaching experience to the Browns, including 12 seasons in the NFL. That makes him one of Cleveland's most tenured coaches on an already experienced staff.

3,000 — Lee has helped eight different quarterbacks throw for at least 3,000 yards in his career: Tyrod Taylor (3,023 in 2016 and 3,025 in 2015), Geno Smith (3,046 in 2014), Ryan Fitzpatrick (3,400 in 2012), Chad Henne (3,301 in 2010), Chad Pennington (3,653 in 2008), Drew Bledsoe (3,639 in 2005), Vinny Testaverde (3,532 in 2004) and Quincy Carter (3,302 in 2003).

99.4 — Under Lee's guidance, Taylor notched the second-highest passer rating in Buffalo history (99.4) in 2015 and rushed for a team record 580 yards this past season.

2,903 — Lee got his start in the NFL as an offensive quality control assistant with the Cowboys in 2003. He started working with Dallas' quarterbacks in 2005 and helped then first-year starter Tony Romo earn his first Pro Bowl selection in 2006, when the quarterback passed for 2,903 yards and 19 touchdowns.

30 — The bulk of Lee's experience has been at the collegiate level, where he's had multiple stops at Ole Miss and Arkansas.

457.4 — In his second go-around with the Razorbacks, Lee — then the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2007 — helped Arkansas average 38.8 points and 457.4 yards per game.

85  — Lee was a quarterback and team captain at Vanderbilt from 1972-74. In that season, Lee led the SEC in completions (85), attempts (159) and was second in passing yards (1,173) and third in touchdowns (7). He also helped Vanderbilt to a 7-3-2 record.
