Browns to interview Jaguars defensive line coach Joe Cullen

Joe Robbins

In 2012, the Jaguars finished last in the NFL in sacks with 20.

The Cleveland Browns requested, and were granted, permission to interview Jaguars defensive line coach Joe Cullen, according to a report from Mike Garafolo of USA Today. While it isn't yet known what position he interviewed for, it was assumed by Garafolo that Cullen interviewed for the same position with the Browns.

Cullen has spent the last three years with the Jaguars after he was hired in 2010. The team has struggled to find a consistent pass rush for a long time, though, and finished last in the NFL in 2012 with 20 sacks.

The Browns finished 2012 in a tie for No. 11 in the NFL in sacks with 38, but are mulling the possibility of a change to a 3-4 defense. New head coach Rob Chudzinski told reporters that the team's defensive coordinator will decide the scheme the team plays in 2013.

Prior to joining the Jaguars, Cullen had three years of experience with the Detroit Lions as a defensive line coach and has many years of coaching experience at the collegiate level with Massachusetts, Richmond, LSU, Memphis, Indiana, Illinois and Idaho State.
