Daily Press, wire sources

A Peninsula native will be one of the men who helps the Cleveland Browns figure out which guys should surround Johnny Manziel.

Browns general manager Ray Farmer began the process of creating his staff Tuesday by hiring Kecoughtan High graduate Morocco Brown as vice president of player personnel, according to multiple reports.

Brown, the Washington Redskins' director of player personnel, interviewed in recent years for several general manager jobs, only to get passed over.

According to the Washington Post, Brown is an up-and-coming executive who made his mark by signing free agents for the Redskins. Stephen Bowen, Barry Cofield and Pierre Garcon are among the players he recruited to Washington.

Brown, a former college linebacker who graduated from N.C. State in 1999, has been with Washington since 2008, when he left a job as the Chicago Bears' assistant director of pro personnel.

With the Browns, he will be second in command of the football side of the organization.

The Browns also announced the hiring of Bill Kuharich as executive chief of staff.

Kuharich initially joined the Browns as a consultant in February to assist Farmer with the NFL draft.
