Bob Wylie is a classic offensive line coach, one of those guys that’s forgotten more about proper hand placement in pass pro than you’ll ever know. He started coaching offensive line at Brown in 1980 and has done so pretty much every year since, bouncing between the college game, the NFL, the CFL and back to the NFL, where he’s remained since 2010.
He also happens to look like if you put Mark Twain’s head on Rob Ryan’s body.
Wylie is in his second season as the Cleveland Browns’ offensive line coach, a team who happens to be the subject of this season’s “Hard Knocks.” HBO cameras caught Wylie providing his thoughts on stretching, and they sound about like Amos Alonzo Stagg’s thoughts on nutrition.

Bob Wylie: great fit as an offensive line coach, not so much as a strength and conditioning coach.
