According to Buffalo head coach Doug Marrone, Jim O’Neil will become the next defensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland was granted permission on Monday to speak with the former Bills assistant.
In addition, Marrone named three other assistant coaches that he expects to join Mike Pettine’s staff. They include defensive line coach Anthony Weaver, Brian Fleury and Jeff Hafley.
“As of right now, obviously Jim O’Neil was granted position [to interview],” Marrone said. “He’ll be leaving to go to Cleveland as the defensive coordinator to the best of my knowledge.”
Marrone was speaking to Buffalo media while introducing new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.
