BEREA, OH (WOIO) -

A flurry of excitement this afternoon at Browns Training Camp in Berea. 

Mike Pettine has officially been named as the new head coach. 

Most recently, Pettine led the Buffalo Bills on the field as defensive coordinator. 

"We are thrilled to announce Mike Pettine as the new head coach of the Cleveland Browns," said Owner Jimmy Haslam. "Mike is the epitome of what we want the Browns to be: tough, aggressive and innovative with a blue-collar, team-first mentality. He knows what's necessary to beat teams in the AFC North. Most importantly, Mike has repeatedly shown the ability to lead his players to consistent improvement and success, clearly what we are striving for as he leads the Cleveland Browns moving forward."

Since firing Coach Rob Chudzinski last December, the Browns have interviewed close to a dozen potential head coaches.
