Browns part ways with offensive line coach Andy Moeller
The Cleveland Browns have parted ways with troubled offensive line coach Andy Moeller. Moeller, 51, was suspended indefinitely by the Browns after he was investigated for allegedly assaulting a girlfriend, who accused him of trying to strangle her. Moeller never was charged with a crime, but he wasn't reinstated. “The Browns and Offensive Line Coach Andy Moeller have mutually agreed to part ways, effective immediately.," the Browns said in a statement. "While no charges were filed in connection with the recent accusations asserted against him, and which Andy vehemently denies, he has advised the Browns that he desires to devote his full attention and focus on his family. Andy states that this was a difficult decision but the right one for him, his family, and the Club at this point in time.” Moeller was in his second season with Cleveland following six with the Ravens. In 2011, Moeller was suspended two games by the NFL and fined $47,000 following a drunken-driving conviction while coaching for the Ravens. Alcohol was deemed to have played a role in Moeller's September incident as well. Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
