CLEVELAND (AP) — Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown is re-joining the Cleveland Browns in an official capacity.
The former star running back will have an unspecified job with the Browns, the NFL team he played for from 1957-65. Browns owner Jimmy Hasalm will introduce Brown during a news conference on Wednesday at FirstEnergy Stadium.
Brown previously worked as a senior adviser with the Browns, but had his role eliminated by former team president Mike Holmgren. Brown had been estranged from the team for a few years, but returned to play in an alumni golf outing last summer and met with Haslam, who had just bought the team from Randy Lerner.
Brown spoke then about his desire to work again with the team.
He is the team's career rushing leader with 12,312 yards and 106 touchdowns.
