Former Cleveland Browns running back Kevin Mack has rejoined the club as Assistant Director of Player Programs, the club announced today. Mack, 44, will work with Browns Director of Player Programs, Jerry Butler, to facilitate player development programs offered by the Browns and the NFL, which include off-field personal development programs with life skills training, continuing education, financial education, career internships and family assistance.
"We're pleased to announce the addition of Kevin Mack to our organization as Assistant Director of Player Programs," said Browns Senior Vice President and General Manager, Phil Savage. "He participated in our former player apprenticeship program last summer and will be a perfect fit for this role under Jerry Butler."
Mack was one of nine alumni involved in an apprenticeship program, a pilot program initiated by Savage, last year during training camp. The two-day program brought nine alumni to training camp with the Browns and each of the participants was exposed to all aspects of the football and business operations of the club.
"I am extremely excited to return to Cleveland and once again join the Browns organization," said Mack. "I have many great memories of my playing career in Cleveland and I look forward to working with Browns players and assisting them in their personal development off the field."
A native of Kings Mountain, N.C., Mack played nine seasons for the Browns (1985-93) and ranks among franchise leaders in many rushing records including: fifth in rushing yards (5,123), fourth in rushing attempts (1,291) and fourth in rushing touchdowns (46). Mack had a career-high 1,104 yards rushing in 1985 and 10 rushing touchdowns in 1986.
