Browns suspend offensive line coach Andy Moeller indefinitely

The Cleveland Browns have suspended offensive line coach Andy Moeller indefinitely for his ongoing personal problems. Moeler was suspended by the Baltimore Ravens in 2011 for two games for driving under the influence charges and fined him $47,000. "Over the weekend, Andy was involved in an incident, involving allegations that we take very seriously," the Browns said in a statement. "We have followed our internal protocol, determining that right now it is best for the team and for Andy to take time away from the organization to focus on his personal matters. We are going to respect the process of investigation on this personal matter and will have no further comment at this time.” Arrested in Baltimore County in September of 2010 on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol and convicted in April of 2011, Moeller was sentenced to two years of supervised probation. He was also ordered to continue to abstain from alcohol, subject himself to random drug and alcohol testing and attend Alcoholic Anonymous At the time, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti stated that Moeller was down to his last strike. "Obviously, it’s a very personal issue," Bisciotti said. "As long as he is doing what he is expected to do, then he has our support, the caveat being that it’s his last chance, and he knows that. I don’t think he would mind me saying that. “He’s either going to get it under control, or he’s going to spend a lifetime in misery like other people that are affected by that. So, we’re behind him as long as he earns that trust and continues to earn that trust. But, he knows he’s one step away from not being a Raven, and then probably not being in the NFL at all.” Moeller, whose father, Gary Moeller, resigned many years ago as the University of Michigan coach after an alcohol-related incident, told The Baltimore Sun prior to Super Bowl XLVII: "This organization has treated me awesome. They have been really good to me. That's something that's special about the Ravens." aaron.wilson@chron.com twitter.com/AaronWilson_NFL
