Browns hire Missouri's Eberflus to coach linebackers

CLEVELAND -- Browns coach Eric Mangini has filled the most notable vacancy on his staff by hiring Missouri's Matt Eberflus as his linebackers coach.

A captain his senior year, Eberflus led Toledo in tackles his last two seasons. In 2004, Eberflus was inducted into the school's athletic hall of fame.
