In response to the rumor and purported debunking thereof that Charley Casserly, former Texans and Redskins G.M. who now works for CBS, could be a candidate to take the reins in Cleveland, a league source tells us that Casserly is “definitely” interested in the Browns, and that the Browns are “definitely” interested in Casserly.
There’s a chance, of course, that the team’s interest in Casserly might arise from a desire to broaden the pool of potential hires so that the focus doesn’t continue to fall on former Packers and Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren.
Regardless of whether Casserly or Holmgren or someone else gets the job, the first order of business will be to decide the fate of coach Eric Mangini.
So what will the new boss do with the other seven hours and fifty-five minutes of his first day on the job?
