Cowboys set to hire Browns RB coach Gary Brown

  •  

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Cowboys are set to hire Cleveland Browns running backs coach Gary Brown for the same job in Dallas.

The team's website reported Friday that the addition of Brown was expected to be completed next week. He would replace Skip Peete, who was the first coach fired in an offseason overhaul of coach Jason Garrett's staff.

Brown spent the past four seasons with the Browns, his first NFL job.

A former NFL back with the Houston Oilers, San Diego and the New York Giants, Brown has college coaching experience with Lycoming, Susquehanna and Rutgers.

Under Brown, Cleveland twice had running backs score 11 touchdowns: Peyton Hillis in 2010 and rookie Trent Richardson last season. The Cowboys had just eight as a team in 2012.
