The Browns have continued to add to Pat Shurmur's coaching staff in Cleveland, hiring Chris Tabor as their new special-teams coach on Tuesday.

Tabor previously was an assistant on the Bears' special-teams staff; Chicago's unit is generally considered to be one of the best in the league. The Bears ranked in the top five in no fewer than nine different special-teams categories combined over the three-year period that Tabor worked with the group, including kickoff-return average and punt-return defense.

"I believe that Chris is one of the up-and-coming special-teams coaches in this league," said Shurmur in a statement released by the team. "He is smart, enthusiastic and has a true passion for this area of the game. In Chris' three years with the Bears, they consistently boasted one of the best special-teams groups in the league, in just about every facet. Having faced them in 2008 and 2009, I know what a challenge it was to go up against their unit. He will be a valuable addition to our coaching staff."
