The newly-hired Cleveland Browns head coach hired former Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken as his offensive coordinator on Sunday, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. He also hired former Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks as his defensive coordinator.

The Browns are expected to make the hires official in the coming days.
Wilks was fired on in December after just one season as the Cardinals head coach, where he led them to a 3-13 record — the franchise’s worst in Arizona.
Monken has spent the previous three seasons as the Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator. He previously worked in the league as the Jacksonville Jaguars’ wide receivers coach from 2007-2010.
