Fair game: Jets pluck Browns RBs coach Lynn

Just as the Cleveland Browns found coaches on the New York Jets’ staff, the Jets have now done the same.

The Jets hired former Browns running backs coach Anthony Lynn for the same job in New York. Cleveland allowed Lynn to interview, and he drew interest from multiple teams. Lynn reached an agreement with the Jets after meeting with new head coach Rex Ryan, general manager Mike Tannenbaum and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.

Of course, it was nearly a year ago that Lynn wound up in the AFC East. Last year, Miami Dolphins executive Bill Parcells attempted to hire Lynn as the team’s running backs coach, but the Browns gave him a contract extension instead.

Now, Lynn has found his way to New York, becoming the latest assistant to defect from the Cleveland staff.
