Browns part ways with O-line coach Andy Moeller


The Cleveland Browns are moving on from suspended offensive line coach Andy Moeller.

"The Browns and Offensive line Coach Andy Moeller have mutually agreed to part ways, effective immediately," the team said in a statement written in conjunction with Moeller's agent, Paul R. Sheehy. "While no charges were filed in connection with the recent accusations asserted against him, and which Andy vehemently denies, he has advised the Browns that he desires to devote his full attention and focus on his family. Andy states that this was a difficult decision but the right one for him, his family, and the Club at this point in time."

The Browns suspended Moeller indefinitely earlier this month after his fianceé accused him of assault at his home in Berea, Ohio. Berea prosecutor Jim Walters announced last week that Moeller would not be charged in the case, per the Akron Beacon Journal.

Moeller previously served a two-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy as a Ravens assistant in 2011. That ban stemmed from Moeller's arrest on drunken-driving charges.

In Moeller's absence, assistant offensive line aide George DeLeone has taken over Cleveland's front five for a team that ranks 25th on the ground heading into Week 4.
