Former Miami Hurricanes linebacker Glenn Cook will assume the role of Cleveland Browns’ vice president of player personnel, a source confirmed to the South Florida Sun Sentinel on Friday. The role was previously held by UM great Alonzo Highsmith.
Cook was promoted from his position as Browns’ assistant director of pro scouting, where he spent the past four seasons. As VP of player personnel, he’ll oversee Cleveland’s pro and college scouting departments, as first reported by Bleacher Report.
Cook spent six seasons at Miami from 2003 to 2008. As a sixth-year senior, he led the Hurricanes with 76 tackles, starting all 13 games at middle linebacker.
