Sources: Browns adding Todd Monken and Steve Wilks as coordinators

The Cleveland Browns are hiring former Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken to the same position, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Browns are also hiring former Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks to be their defensive coordinator, sources confirmed to ESPN's Pat McManamon.

Monken interviewed for the head coach openings with the New York Jets, Green Bay Packers and Cincinnati Bengals this offseason. Wilks was let go by the Cardinals after compiling a 3-13 record in his only season in Arizona.

The 52-year-old Monken had been Tampa Bay's offensive coordinator since 2016 after he was Southern Miss' head coach from 2013 to '15. 

Wilks, 49, was the defensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers prior to joining the Cardinals. 

The NFL Network first reported the Browns were hiring Wilks.

In addition to adding Monken and Wilks, the Browns are also hiring James Campen as associate head coach/offensive line coach, league sources told ESPN's Rob Demovsky. Campen had been with the Green Bay Packers since 2004 and was the team's longest tenured assistant.
