The Cleveland Browns hired former New York Jets cornerback and scout Aaron Glenn as their assistant defensive backs coach.
“Aaron Glenn fits the mold of what we are looking for to lead our players,” Browns coach Mike 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 played in the NFL for 15 seasons and has been a scout for two years
Glenn spent the past two seasons in the Jets’ front office, serving as a college area scout last year 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. He was a three-time Pro Bowl selection, playing for the Jets, Houston Texans, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars and New Orleans Saints.
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.
He was a two-time All-American selection at Texas A&M.
