The Cleveland Browns completed their first interview with an outside candidate for their open head coaching position on Wednesday.

The team announced they had concluded their interviews with former Detroit Lions and Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell. The Browns had previously interviewed interim head coach Gregg Williams and offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens for the position.

Caldwell is a coach with an offensive background that has served as a quarterbacks coach at various stops throughout his coaching career. With the further development of Baker Mayfield a top priority for the Browns, that would seem to be one of the advantages Caldwell would have to bring to the table.

Caldwell posted a 62-50 record in seven seasons as a head coach with the Lions and Colts. He made the playoffs four times over that span, including a trip to Super Bowl XLIV with the Colts in 2009.

  1. Most underrated coach in the NFL. Hope he gets another HC gig. Could do wonders with Baker Mayfield.

  2. Please god , not Jim Caldwell. I’d rather they keep Greg Williams and Freddie Kitchens than hire Caldwell. I look for either Mike McCarthy or a young “splash” hire

  3. Jim Caldwell did very well w the Ravens as OC.. HC no way, if U can’t win the big 1 w Peyton as QB in his prime, why be considered HC again.
    Didn’t the Colts lose the SuperBowl to Saints defense led by Greg Williams?
    Was there a bounty on Peyton to throw an INT Reggie Wayne that went the other way?

    This is Mike McCarthey’s job to lose..SuperBowl ring and 3 former coworkers from Green Bay in executive spots, if you can’t hired w that resume and relationships, you must be a real jerk to work with or Haslam doesn’t like him.

  4. Jim Caldwell would actually be a pretty smart pick. The man has proven an ability to coach bad teams into respectable teams with the Lions, that was good QB play he is a playoff and SB Coach. It would be very interesting to see what he could do with Baker Mayfield throwing the ball and an elite Defense keeping the game in check. If I were Dorsey I would hire Caldwell long before I would hire Mike McCarthy, or a number of other rumored candidates.
