Jim Schwartz will finally get a chance to be a field coach for the Browns. The last time he was in Cleveland, he did a lot of things for the Browns but coaching wasn’t among them.

“Well, I mean, we’ve been doing a lot of things,” Browns Hall of Famer and former Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsom said by phone to the Beacon Journal on Tuesday. “I don’t think you can sit there and say, ‘That’s what he did.'” We will, we all did what Bill (Belichick) asked us to do, and Bill and Mike (Lombardi) asked us to do.”

Schwartz, 56, will be the Browns’ defensive coordinator for the 2023 season, replacing Joe Woods. Schwartz, then 26 years old, was just another of Belichick’s famous “Slappies” when he started with the original franchise during the 1993 season.
