Browns part ways with offensive line coach Andy Moeller
The move comes in the aftermath of a domestic violence incident at Moeller's Berea, Ohio home on Sept. 5, in which a woman claiming to be his fianceé alleged that he had assaulted her. Moeller denied the claims and no charges have been filed against him.
“The Browns and Offensive Line Coach Andy Moeller have mutually agreed to part ways, effective immediately,” the team said in a joint statement with Moeller's agency. “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 suspended from the team shortly after the incident took place.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that the team has known since the suspension that Moeller would not be returning.
Moeller was also suspended by the NFL in 2011 for drunken driving.
