CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – According to reports from Cleveland.com, new Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski will not bring back defensive coordinator Steve Wilks next season.
Wilks was named defensive coordinator last season by former head coach Freddie Kitchens.
The Browns defense finished 22nd overall and seventh against the pass in 2019.
ESPN is reporting that Stefanski and the Browns are leaning towards current San Francisco 49ers defensive backs/run-game coordinator Joe Woods to become the new defensive coordinator.
Woods spent eight seasons with Stefanski in Minnesota, from 2006-13.
