At the moment, the Browns don’t have a coach.
But it’s early yet.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Browns officials left Mobile, Ala., last night, prepared to interview another candidate this morning.
That came after reports from a pair of Buffalo News writers that their second interview with Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine last night had gone so well, that it appeared Pettine was getting the job.
Cabot described those reports as “premature,” and the Browns do still have work to do.
They have interviews scheduled with Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter and want to talk again with Seahawks defensive line coach Dan Quinn.
Also, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said the Browns reached out to him about his assistants, though he didn’t specify which one or how many, via Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com.
Cabot reported that the Browns hadn’t reached out to 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman, which could point to defensive line coach Jim Tomsula.
So stay tuned, the Browns either have a coach or they don’t, so there’s still time for more people to turn them down.
