The Cleveland Browns hired former NFL executive Bill Kuharich as executive chief of staff.
Kuharich has worked in the NFL for 26 years. He was hired in February as a consultant.
“Bill provides us with an important asset as we move our team forward,” general manager Ray Farmer said. “We brought him in to help us with the 2014 draft and now we want to expand his role. Bill originally gave me my start in personnel and has played a part in every step of my career. He’s more than a mentor. He’s helped me become better at scouting players, better at being a father, and better at living life.
“Bill has seen it all in our game. He’s been a team president. He’s been a GM. He comes from a football family. He understands the landscape of the NFL. We’re very fortunate to have him on our team.”
Kuharich will work in college and pro scouting, according to the browns.
Kuharich was a director of player personnel with the New Orleans Saints and later a general manager, president and chief operating officer.
He was later the Kansas City Chiefs' director of pro personnel.
