According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cleveland Browns are hiring Indianapolis Colts pro scouting coordinator Andrew Berry in order to become their new vice president of player personnel:

Berry just completed his 7th season with the Colts and his 4th as the team’s pro scouting coordinator. He was originally hired as a scouting assistant in 2009 before being promoted to pro scout in 2011.

Berry was a former 4-year starter and 3-year All-Ivy League selection for the Harvard Crimson.

It’s worth noting that Berry will join recently hired chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta atop the Browns front office, who was a Harvard University graduate himself in 1995. DePodesta is most known for his role with the Oakland A’s, which was popularized by the advanced sabermetrics baseball book/film “Moneyball”.

It’s safe to say that Berry could definitely see some number crunching in his immediate football future.

For the Colts, Berry is just the latest member of the team’s front office and coaching staff to move on, as the team has seen some major changes within the organization already this offseason.
