Browns retain special teams coordinator Chris Tabor
The Cleveland Browns retained special teams coordinator Chris Tabor. Tabor has been with the team since 2011. “I’m excited to be able to retain Chris Tabor as our Special Teams Coordinator,” Browns coach Hue Jackson said. “Chris is an outstanding coach. He is incredibly knowledgeable and possesses the passion necessary to motivate his unit. They play hard and tough while paying attention to all the details and nuances that make the huge impact needed to win on special teams. Obviously, I’ve seen the success he’s had with the Browns special teams unit first hand in my time in this division. It’s a blessing to have him as a member of this high-quality staff we are in the process of building.” “My family and I really love it here in Cleveland,” Tabor said. “It’s great to be able to stay in one place for such a long period of time, keep your system in place and continue to coach some the same players. This is a great place to coach and I’m excited about working with Hue.” Since Tabor’s arrival in 2011, the Browns lead the NFL in punt return average (11.3), are tied for fifth in kickoff return average against (21.7) and are tied for sixth in punt return touchdowns (four). The Browns have won six AFC Special Teams Player of the Week awards from 2011-15. Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
