Robiske out of job only two days; signs with Jacksonville

When a player gets cut in the NFL, if he has reasonable talent, another team can use his services and will pick him up as soon as his name hits the waiver wire.

Brian Robiske, the former Cleveland Browns player, was cut on Tuesday and two days later he is with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Robiske, replaces the injured Mike Sims-Walker.

Robiske, a second-round draft pick from Ohio State in 2009, had caught only 3 passes for 25 yards as the Browns possession-receiver.

Cleveland native Robiske cut by Browns

Brian Robiske, a Cleveland Browns fan since his youth while serving as a ballboy when his dad was an assistant coach with the team, had a chance to play for the hometown team.

Robiske was a star player at Chagrin Falls High School. He was an Ohio State star, finishing eighth on the all-time list with 127 catches in 51 games.

Robiske, the first of three second-round picks by the Browns in 2009 and the 36th overall selection, was cut on Tuesday in favor of running back Thomas Clayton, who was signed due to the injuries to Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty.

The move was in the air for weeks as Robiske only had three catches for 25 yards, the lowest of all the Browns receiving corps.

Robiske never really had the production in the NFL that is expected of a possession-receiver. He caught seven balls as a rookie in 2009 and 29 catches in 2010.

Baltimore beats Cleveland 20-10

There was no surprise that the Ravens beat the Browns in Cleveland Stadium on Sunday, 20-10. But the surprise was the bad strategy decided upon by Browns head coach Eric Mangini.

The Browns kicked a field goal at the end of the first half, just to keep the ball away from the Baltimore Ravens.

On the second half kickoff, trailing by three points, Cleveland tried to trick the Ravens with an onsides kick which failed to go the required 10 yards. The Ravens got the ball in good field position, at the Browns 38 and three plays later they scored to put the game away for good.

The Browns are now 5-10 on the season and 10-21 under Eric Mangini, who is on the hot seat again.

Rookie quarterback Colt McCoy threw three interceptions in his worst performance in his seventh game as a starter.

There was also a fumble by wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi.

The Browns did score for the second straight on a trick play as Massaquoi using a receiver razzle-dazzle option pass, found  Brian Robiske, who circled behind cornerback Chris Carr and cradled the ball while hitting the turf. The replay showed the ball was caught and touchdown.

The Ravens, now 11-4, sewed up a wild card berth in the playoffs but can be division champs if the Browns can pull off an upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Ohio State assistant Hazell hired as head coach at Kent State

Ohio State assistant head coach Darrell Hazell made history on Monday while being named as the school’s new head football coach. He has become the first black head football coach in the school’s 90-year history as a program.

Hazell becomes Kent State’s 20th football coach. He replaces Doug Martin, who resigned last month with one game remaining in a 5-7 season. Martin had a seven year record of 29-53.

Hazell’s job is to beat the Golden Flashes arch-rival Akron and turn the program into a consistent winner in the Mid-American Conference.

Hazell was one of four candidates interviewed on campus. The others included: Kent State defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis and wide receivers coaches Curt Cignetti of Alabama and Bobby Kennedy of Texas, respectively.

Hazell’s final game with the Ohio State Buckeyes will be the Sugar Bowl contest against Arkansas on January 4. He will however, spend some time at Kent State talking to his players, evaluating what assistants will be kept, who to hire as assistants and of course recruit. He’ll rejoin the Buckeyes after Christmas.

Hazell, who is 46, has 25 years of college coaching experience, with the past seven being at Ohio State. As the Ohio State wide receivers coach, he was beneficial in the development of Ted Ginn, Jr. Brian Robiske, Brian Hartline, Anthony Gonzalez and Santonio Holmes.

Hazell was a top-notch football player in his own right, just not on the Division I level. He was an All-America wide receiver receiver as a senior at Division III Muskingum University in Ohio in 1986 and became running backs coach at Oberlin College in 1987. He also been an assistant at Eastern Illinois, Pennsylvania, Western Michigan, Army, West Virginia and spent three years at Rutgers and then joined Tressel’s staff in 2004.
