Dick Jauron will be Cleveland's next defensive coordinator (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

UPODATED 5:40 p.m. EST: The Browns have announced the hiring of Jauron as defensive coordinator. It's official.

----------

UPDATED (1:58 p.m.): New Browns coach Pat Shurmur declined to confirm Jauron's hiring on today's edition of ProFootbalTalk Live.

Said Shurmur: “I think it will become public and official from the Browns’ side of things very quickly. But obviously Dick’s a very, very well-respected guy in the profession, a guy that I’ve known for a long, long time. So I think that will be public at some point - the direction we’re gonna go.”

So, yeah, it seems pretty clear that Jauron is the guy.

----------

Though the deal probably won’t happen today, the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot is reporting that the Browns will hire former Bills and Bears head coach Dick Jauron as Cleveland’s new defensive coordinator.

Jauron had been the Eagles secondary coach, but he had begun drawing interest from a number of teams in need of a defensive coordinator. Cabot’s source, though, implied that Jauron’s familiarity with Browns team president Mike Holmgren and general manager Tom Heckert pushed him toward Cleveland.

So, how will this affect the Browns defense, assuming Jauron actually does replace Rob Ryan?

As pointed out by Browns Rapid Reporter Marty Gitlin, who calls the Jauron hiring a “minor coup,” the Browns now likely will switch to a 4-3 defense from the 3-4.

Writes Gitlin, “Since NT Ahtyba Rubin is the only effective DL remaining and there is little athleticism at LB, look for a personnel overhaul in those units.”

Report: Jauron to be Browns defensive coordinator

Dick Jauron may not be head coaching matierial, but he is a great football coach.  He also has deep ties with Holmgren going back to green bay.  Of all his staff from back in the day, Reid, Sherman, Maricucci, Gruden, Mornenwig, and Jauron, Homlgren said that Dick worked the hardest, putting in the most time.  That staff has to be the best group of assistants ever.
