Vance Joseph expected to interview for Browns defensive coordinator

Vance Joseph continues to draw interest as a defensive coordinator candidate.

Joseph is interviewing with the Cardinals on Thursday and Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that he is expected to interview with the Browns on Friday.

Joseph was fired as the Broncos head coach after going 11-21 over two years in Denver. He had one year as a defensive coordinator in Miami before getting the top job with the Broncos and spent over a decade as a defensive backs coach before that point.

Joseph also interviewed for the Bengals’ head coaching vacancy this month. Indications are that the Bengals have settled on their choice to replace Marvin Lewis and that they are parting ways with assistants who their new coach does not want on the staff, so it seems unlikely that Joseph is going to land another head coaching job straightaway.

  1. The Browns celebrate success by immediately firing their first winning coach in ages, replacing him with someone who’s been a coordinator for 2 months, and potentially hiring someone who’s mostly failed to take his old DC spot.

    Even the underpants gnomes can’t figure out how this leads to profit.

  2. Kevpft – Browns turnaround came from offense with Kitchens and Mayfield. In two seasons, Gregg William’s defense went from 31st to 29rh, which is why nobody is beating down his door.

    If you understand football you would recognize that Greg Williams was not why they won all those games. It is because of the scheme Kitchens developed to help Baker Mayfield thrive. When you draft a QB #1, that takes priority over defense, and while williams is a good DC, I don’t think he is a HC. At all. Kitchens took the cuffs off and gave them back to Hue. I’d rather have him as my head coach. So would Mayfield.
