Its Official Haskell Senior Advisor to Holmgren…..

(From ClevelandBrowns.com)
We reported on Brownsgab.com that the Browns were close to getting Haskell to be apart of the Cleveland Browns organzation. We didn’t know what the role would be but now we do.

Today, Haskell has been announced to be the Senior Advisor to Mike Holmgren and the Cleveland Browns. Holmgren and Haskell have worked together for a very long time.

Haskell brings a wealth of experience to the Browns, having coached on both the collegiate and professional levels for more than 30 years. Most recently, he spent nine seasons with the Seattle Seahawks (2000-08), with his first seven campaigns as offensive coordinator (2000-06) and final two as assistant head coach/offensive coordinator (2007-08). In 2005, the Seahawks finished the season ranked second in total offense as they advanced to Super Bowl XL. During Haskell’s tenure in Seattle, the Seahawks captured four NFC West titles (2004-07) and advanced to the postseason five consecutive times (2003-07).

Prior to joining the Seahawks, Haskell was the offensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers for two seasons (1998-99), where his offense finished the 1999 season sixth overall. He also spent six years with the Green Bay Packers, coaching both running backs (1992-94) and wide receivers (1995-97). During Haskell’s time in Green Bay, the Packers won three NFC Central titles (1995-97), made five postseason trips (1993-97), and two Super Bowl appearances (1996-97) with one Super Bowl title in 1996.

Haskell entered the NFL coaching ranks in 1983, spending nine seasons with the Los Angeles Rams (1983-91), leading the special teams (1983-86), running backs (1987-90) and tight ends/special teams units (1991). As a member of the Rams’ coaching staff, the team won the NFC West title in 1985 and made two NFC Championship game appearances, in 1985 and 1989.
