Another one of his charges, second-year TE ZACH SUDFELD led the team in special teams tackles, posting 20.

In his first season with the Jets, he oversaw a career season from tight end JEFF CUMBERLAND, who set personal bests in yards (398) and touchdown re­ceptions (four) while finishing second on the team with 15.3 yards per catch. Hagen’s group combined for 63 receptions, 851 yards and six touchdowns.

Before the Jets, Hagen oversaw a Browns tight end group that combined for 91 receptions and seven touchdowns, tying for the seventh-highest total in the NFL in 2011. Also in 2011, Hagen was instrumental in drafting and de­veloping tight end Jordan Cameron, who was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2013.

Under Hagen’s guidance, tight end Ben Watson led the Browns with 68 catch­es for 763 yards and three touchdowns in 2010. He was the first tight end to lead the Browns in receiving yards since 1985.

Hagen has 20 years of experience on the college level. Before he returned to the Browns in 2009, Hagen tutored tight ends at North Carolina for two seasons. In 2008, the Tar Heels secured a record of 8-5 as they went on to play in the Meineke Car Care Bowl, the school’s first bowl appearance in four years. Prior to that, he was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Fresno State University for one season (2006).

In his first stint with Cleveland, Hagen spent time as both the tight ends coach (2001-03) and quarterbacks coach (2004).

Before he began working in the NFL, Hagen was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at California from 1999-2000. He spent two seasons at San Jose State as offensive coordinator, quarterbacks coach and recruiting coordinator (1997-98). Hagen previously served as the head coach at Wart­burg (Iowa) College in 1996, guiding the team to a 7-3 record, as the school ranked eighth in Division III in total offense.

From 1994-95, Hagen served as the offensive coordinator at UNLV. In his two-year tenure, the team broke 20 school offensive records.

Hagen got his start in the coaching profession as a graduate assistant at Il­linois in 1984. He served in the same role at Kansas (1985-86) before getting his first full-time position as receivers and tight ends coach at Northern Ari­zona University (1987-88). He has also had stops at Notre Dame (1989-90), Kent State University (1991) and Nevada-Reno (1992-93).
