Last week, Berea City Prosecutor Jim Walter said no charges would be filed against Andy Moeller for the alleged incident. (Read the prosecutor's full statement here)

Earlier this month, a female friend of Moeller's called police to his home, saying he tried to strangle her.  The Browns took immediate action and suspended Moeller indefinitely.

On Tuesday, the team released the following joint statement with Moeller’s Representation Paul R. Sheehy of ProStar Sports Agency:

“The Browns and Offensive Line Coach Andy Moeller have mutually agreed to part ways, effective immediately.  While no charges were filed in connection with the recent accusations asserted against him, and which Andy vehemently denies, he has advised the Browns that he desires to devote his full attention and focus on his family. Andy states that this was a difficult decision but the right one for him, his family, and the Club at this point in time.”

Moeller is no stranger to trouble in the NFL. The Baltimore Ravens suspended him for two games in 2011 for violating the league's personal conduct policy following a conviction for driving under the influence.
