CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski announced that the team’s chief of staff, Callie Brownson, will fill in for the passing game and wide receivers coordinator in the last regular game of the season.

Brownson will take the place of Chad O’Shea, who is unable to coach on Sunday in Cleveland’s pivotal game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Cleveland’s offseason hire made history during a November game against the Jacksonville Jaguars when she became the first woman to coach a position group in the NFL.
