The Cleveland Browns again were forced to close their facility today. This time because of multiple positive coronavirus tests. The positives were very significant for a franchise preparing for their first playoff game in 18 years.

Head coach Kevin Stefanski headlines the list of positives today, along with starting guard, Joel Bitonio. Tight ends coach, Drew Petzing and defensive backs coach Jeff Howard were also positive among the coaching staff. Reserve wide receiver KhaDarel Hodge also will miss the game Sunday.

This comes as huge news and a huge blow to Cleveland. Stefanski is not only the head coach, but also calls all of the offensive plays. Those duties will likely go to offensive coordinator, Alex Van Pelt. Pitt fans remember him as the school’s all-time passing leader.

Special teams coach Mike Preifer will be the acting head coach for the time being.

 

More to come.

The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the SteelerNation.com message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
