Whisenhunt gets second interview with Browns

Former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt seems to have made an impression on the Browns.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Whisenhunt is in Cleveland today for a second interview.

While Whisenhunt’s 45-51 regular season record won’t inspire much passion from casual fans, the guy went to a Super Bowl in Arizona, which is far from a given. He looked far smarter when he had Kurt Warner, and far of a coach when he had John Skelton, Ryan Lindley and Brian Hoyer.

The Browns have cast a wide net, but a second interview with Whisenhunt could indicate things are narrowing a bit.

  1. He could never find a QB in Arizona once Warner retired. Now, he’s possibly going to a franchise that has not found a QB since they rejoined the league.

  2. I don’t know who to believe.. Mary Kay who is not to reliable
    Says its wiz and bengals.com and ESPN say its Zimmer. Who knows
    I mean she might be right but if Mary Kay says something it’s normally
    Wrong

  3. If Cleveland gets the right coach, they could get that franchise turned around quickly, they have over $40 million in cap space. Why anyone would want that job with the new owner is beyond me.

  4. Make no mistake Coach Whiz would be a great hire for The Browns. He was tied down by Rod Graves when it came to some personnel decisions.

  5. It figures, a team with no legitimate or strong QB wil be enamored by Whisenhunt, boy did he mess up that QB situation in the dessert.

  6. Whiz will destroy McCoy’s and Weeden’s confidence thru his mismanagement, just like he messed up Leinart. The Browns really have no clue, do they?

  7. He is a great coach. I think Arizon was nuts to get rid of him. Overall, teams need to realize that there are ups and downs, and its better to ride it out with a coach you KNOW is capible than to risk getting a new coach you don’t know about – but HOPE is better.

    Whisenhunt has PROVEN he can take a team to the superbowl IF he has the on-field players supporting him. What else do you want?

  8. LOL. He went to the Superbowl with a Hall of Fame QB and WR. Players that he didnt develop. A lot of coaches can do that.

    Mike Singletary out-coached Whisnenhunt each and Everytime the 49ers and Cardinals played each other. EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!

  9. If they hire him it will be the same old browns. This guy is not a good choice. I thought haslam would do his homework a little better Keep looking please!

  10. Well, at least he won’t have any o-line issues in Cleveland with Joe Thomas and Alex Mack keeping thier QB safe.

  11. Weedon will be plenty good enough. Shurmur wouldn’t be able to develop Dan Marino he was that bad. For all you Jon Gruden lovers that post, he loves Weedon (research it). So how is it that you say Weedon is not the answer after 1 year with a terrible coach? His age doesn’tbother me a bit. Get 6 good years out and thats good, which is the same shelf life of RG111.

  12. The Browns cast a wide net, but with the available candidates what’s the boot-to-fish ratio? It looks like Haslam and Banner have already painted themselves into a corner when Chip Kelly went back to Oregon. And as they continue on this backwards route of hiring a coach THEN general manager, quality GM’s are coming off the board. It’s like watching the same mistakes Lerner made all over again.

  13. As a Browns fan, I don’t want this guy, either. I’d rather have Trestman or Arians (er, if he plans on staying out of the hospital, that is…)

  14. Good God, how awful do you have to be as a coach before you finally get thrown off the NFL coach merry-go-round??
