Browns expected to interview Josh McDaniels on Saturday

Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has been installed as an early favorite to land the Browns coaching job and he’ll get his chance to make his case for the job on Saturday.

That’s when Chris Mortensen of ESPN.com reports that the Browns will head to New England for an interview with the longtime Patriots assistant and former Broncos head coach. McDaniels is seen as a favored choice of Browns General Manager Mike Lombardi and he needs to interview before the weekend is out or wait until the Patriots are finished with their season.

If McDaniels does come to Ohio, there will likely be renewed talk about a trade bringing Patriots backup quarterback Ryan Mallett to the team. Given the need for a quarterback in Cleveland, that deal might have a chance of happening this offseason.

The Browns interviewed Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn in Seattle on Wednesday and they’ve also shown interest in Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase and Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, although Gase prefers to wait until Denver is finished playing and Bowles is reportedly unsure about interviewing with Cleveland.

    McDaniels might be going to Cleveland, but I doubt Mallett is going anywhere.

    Good riddance, Josh, from NE fans everywhere. Your play calling is horrendous.

    I think Ryan Mallett is going to be a very good QB.

    He has the talent, a big arm, knows football (they said Belicheck couldn’t get Mallett off the board at the Combine, because he knew so many offensive schemes), and my guess is he benefited quite a bit from working with Brady and Belicheck.
    (Not a Pats fan, by the way, but I like to see good players get a chance.)

    Browns might be lethal next year.

    If you want to set your football team back even further than they are now, then definitely hire him

    Browns fans deserve better than this clown.

    I can’t believe he would want this job. He has one fail on his resume and this one seems set for failure.

    I am sure Belichick would advise against it too.

    Atleast there isn’t a QB hes going to make angry this time when he brings in Mallet and Cassel.

    It’s a trap!

    I’ll actually feel sorry for every Cleveland fan if they hire this clown.

    Maybe he can bring back Tebow?

  10. brohamma says: Jan 2, 2014 10:37 AM

    Mallet isn’t going anywhere.

  11. stonedwhitetrash says: Jan 2, 2014 10:52 AM

    McDaniel may sign TIM TEBOW again and lose his job again by doing it.

  12. seatownballers says: Jan 2, 2014 10:58 AM

    I saw mallet in pre season, and I wasn’t impressed.below average talent

  13. green41563 says: Jan 2, 2014 11:41 AM

    It’s kind of incredible that this guy can get a second shot anywhere.

  14. camdenyard says: Jan 2, 2014 11:57 AM

    Sure…I mean, NE assistants have a great history as HCs in the NFL. Right?

  15. crappygovernment says: Jan 2, 2014 2:21 PM

    Tebow = Western Civilization!

  16. ronarch13 says: Jan 2, 2014 3:04 PM

    He drafted Tebow (Worst 1st round pick maybe ever)!
    The Browns drafted Weeden (oldest pick EVER)
    Seems like they fit… and I am a Browns fan.

    Here we go, again!

    I never thought I’d be drawing SS before I would see my Browns in a SB.
