Chad Johnson Gets Hired as Browns New Assistant Receivers Coach
It has been five years since Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson last played in the NFL, and now he’ll be back on the field in 2016.
Not as a player, though, but as the Cleveland Browns Assistant Receivers Coach, according to TMZ.
“Johnson says he asked his former Bengals, and current Browns head coach, Hue Jackson, for a coaching job … and to Chad’s surprise, H.J. said yes.
Chad says he will be in Cleveland on July 28th, ready to coach. We’re told the gig is just for training camp … as of now. “
A few days ago, Johnson hinted on Twitter that he would indeed ask Hue Jackson for a spot on the coaching staff.
Gonna ask Hue if I can join the Browns coaching staff as a “route running specialist” assistant receiver coach, what’s the worse he can say.
