Reports: Duce Staley joins Browns as RBs coach

Duce Staley is joining the Cleveland Browns as running backs coach, CBS Sports and Cleveland.com reported Wednesday.

Staley was fired by the Carolina Panthers in November in the aftermath of head coach Frank Reich’s termination.

Staley chose the Browns over the New York Jets, who also interviewed the longtime former running back after parting ways with Taylor Embree.

Staley, 48, rushed for 5,785 yards and 24 touchdowns in his 10-year career with the Eagles (1997-2003) and Pittsburgh Steelers (2004-06). He also finished with 287 receptions for 2,587 yards and 10 TDs.
