BEREA, Ohio (AP) - The Browns have named Ray Horton their new defensive coordinator.
Horton spent the past two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, who ranked second in the NFL in interceptions and third-down efficiency. Horton has 19 years of experience as a pro assistant. Before he went to Arizona, Horton spent seven seasons with Pittsburgh. He played 10 years as a defensive back in the league.
Horton replaces Dick Jauron, who was not retained by new Cleveland coach Rob Chudzinski. Horton ``will work very well with the young nucleus of players we have on defense,'' Chudzinski said.
On Thursday, former San Diego coach Norv Turner was named the Browns' new offensive coordinator.
The Browns also interviewed the 52-year-old Horton for their head coaching vacancy before naming Chudzinski their sixth coach since 1999.
