CLEVELAND, Ohio (HawaiiNewsNow) - Former Warrior football coach Tony Tuioti will be named an assistant coach for the Cleveland Browns sometime this week, sources have told Hawaii News Now.

Most recently, Tuioti spent two seasons as the Warriors linebackers coach.

He is one of two former Rainbow Warriors to win a WAC championship both as a player and coach in school history.
