Report: Greg Roman a candidate for opening with Browns

AP

Ex-49ers and Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman is a candidate for the offensive opening on the Browns’ coaching staff, NFL Network reported Monday evening.

Pep Hamilton, who served as the Browns’ quarterbacks coach and associate head coach, is leaving for a similar job at the University of Michigan. Head Coach Hue Jackson calls the plays for the Browns.

Roman was fired as offensive coordinator of the Bills last September. He has a Cleveland tie as a graduate of John Carroll University.

Jackson said he had known about Hamilton’s opportunity at Michigan for more than a week, and the Browns presumably would want to move quickly to fill the vacancy with so many teams still without head coaches.

Roman was offensive coordinator in San Francisco from 2011-14 and joined the Bills in 2015.

  1. Cleveland be prepared to be wowed by Roman’s imaginative offense as he 1.) Runs up the middle followed by 2.) an ELECTRIFYING backwards pass for a loss of yards only to have your socks knocked off for 3.) A run up the middle which leads you to munch on 4.) The Punt.

  2. I find it very telling that Harbaugh made a point to salute Rex for bringing Roman to the Bills as his OC… But with Roman out of work, Harbaugh goes out of his way to get Pep Hamilton out of Cleveland and into Michigan.

    Anyone else remember when Belichick did such a poor job with the Browns and they got rid of the team?
    ———————————————
    I remember Belichick getting 2 rings with the Giants and 4 rings with the Patriots.By the way,they’re 3 games away from another possible ring.
    Remember that.

    Belichick lost his first super bowls after being busted for cheating. He is 1 – 2 in super bowls since being caught cheating and should be 0 – 3 if it wasn’t for the dumbest playcall in sb history.

  5. Hue Jackson is one of the few minority head coaches in the NFL. His top offensive and defensive assistants last year were both minorities (Pep Hamilton and Ray Horton). They already replaced Horton with Gregg Williams. I totally advocate hiring the best person for the job regardless of race (full disclosure, I think there are plenty of better white and black choices than Greg Roman). It would not surprise me if someone from the Fritz Pollard Alliance contacts Hue Jackson to consider other candidates and to give a minority a chance to fill this position.

  6. if the browns draft Chad Kelly– they will have a hall of famer at quarterback, he has SportsCentury written all over him.

  7. Didn’t Truckstop Jimmy say there would be no changes in personnel, that he was satisfied with “the Harvard plan”?

    And, do the Harvard boys run analytics on coaches, too?

  8. Yet another bad decision by the FO…replace one failed Nutjob assistant with another failed Nutjob assistant. Maybe you can trade a few picks to get Fangio too…really run the trifecta.

    I suspect Hue Jackson would have changed the culture of that team…maybe not gone better than 8-8 or 9-7, but at least taught Cleveland that they *can* win again. That would be a huge step. Now, I begin to think that he won’t have a chance to do that much.

  9. Helloooooooo, Coach Jackson………..there’s a reason this guy is unemployed. HE’S A TERRIBLE PLAY CALLER. Dah

    Do not do it Cleveland, i know you try to one up us lately and all but do not do it.

    _ 49er fan

    Dont do it Cleveland. Unless you want a glorified college OC who thinks college trick plays run every other play is the way to success in the NFL……listen to ctiggs ….signed……a Bills fan

    Kelly has been thrown off 2 different college teams. Arrested for bar fights when he is to young to drink. Total head case. You guys just went through this with the drunk from Texas. dont do it again Brownies.

  12. His value will be off setting all the dead money they have from other fired coaches…HJ will still call plays…

  13. Hue Jackson will fail because he doesn’t have a clue of what it takes to build a football team and neither does anyone else in the organization. Pep realize that and went back to college! Hue place everything on the QB, but the QB can’t block or run routes and Hue won’t allow the QB the ability to changes plays at the line of scrimmage. Hue will be fired by week 10!
