There have been reports that the Browns are interested in speaking to three members of the 49ers coaching staff about their head coaching vacancy, but it appears only one of them is currently scheduled for a conversation with the team.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Browns are set to interview 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh this weekend. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed that the Browns asked for permission to speak to Saleh earlier this week.

Matt Maiocco of NBCSportsBayArea.com reports that offensive passing game coordinator Mike LaFleur and offensive running game coordinator Mike McDaniel “were in wait-and-see modes” regarding reports that the Browns were interested in speaking with them as well.

Former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is expected to interview with the Browns on Thursday.

  1. Man teams love our coordinators and assistants. No matter what kind of team we have teams always want to raid our coaching staff. I don’t understand.

    I personally think the best fit for Saleh is the USC Head Coaching job. He would be the king of California recruiting.

  2. That would be a stupid hire. Cleveland’s problem is offense.also I get it the guy has aaa good defense and jumps around and gets really excited , but fans do buy tickets to watch the coach. It’s also pretty easy to look good when you have nine first round picks on your d-line rotation

  3. These coaches can’t bring their players with them. How many top first round picks are on that D the 49ers have? I could coach that unit.

    The Browns really swung and missed at the opportunity to rebuild this franchise. Got some talent with those pick but could have done a lot better. This job will be vacant again in a couple of years. Ownership is impatient and have no idea what they are doing.

  4. Mike McDaniel is not a HC candidate in any way shape or form. He is Kyle’s wing man, end of story, and Browns already know who he is.
