The Cleveland Browns have hired Jacksonville Jaguars defensive line coach Joe Cullen in the same position, Jaguars new head coach Gus Bradley confirmed at the Senior Bowl.
Bradley confirms Cullen leaving for Cleveland. #jaguars— Ryan O'Halloran (@ryanohalloran) January 22, 2013
There had been rumors Cullen would be leaving the Jaguars in the coaching turnover, but now it's been confirmed. Cullen joined the Jaguars in 2010, instantly becoming a fan favorite because of how he acted during training camp. Cullen is a fiery coach that's intense and often loses his voice early into camp from the yelling.
Unfortunately for Cullen, be it poor coaching or just poor talent, the Jaguars defensive line never seemed to materialize much of a pass rush outside of free agent pick up Aaron Kampman. Some players even seemed to regress during Cullen's tenure, but again the talent on the line was suspect at best, so it's tough to decide where it went wrong.
