And we have more news related to the formation of the assistants around Rob Chudzinski in Cleveland. Chris Mortensen at ESPN was the first to report this news:

George Warhop, 51, will remain as the Browns OL coach in 2013. He was one of four assistant coaches who was previously retained after the Eric Mangini regime came to an end after 2010. So this coming season will be his fifth in Cleveland.
Previously, Warhop was the OL coach for the 49ers from ’05-’08, for Dallas from ’03-04 and for Arizona from ’98-’02. Notably, Norv Turner was his offensive coordinator in San Francisco in 2006 and Turner has long been rumored to be the leading candidate to be named the Browns’ offensive coordinator soon.
