The Browns will not be hiring Patriots linebackers coach Jerod Mayo as their next defensive coordinator.

According to multiple reports, Mayo has informed the Browns that he will not be interviewing for the opening. The Browns requested an interview with Mayo after they fired Joe Woods this week.

The Patriots announced on Thursday that they are working to keep Mayo in the fold and declining the interview with the Browns suggests that he’d see that as a lateral move, at best, from New England.

The Panthers also requested an interview with Mayo for their head coaching job. There’s been no word on whether he’s scheduled to interview with them at this time.

  1. The overall 2nd rankee D was 2 ranked for a reason. Really good players and great work by Steve Belichick and Mayo sharing the overall duties.

    Now, fix the offense, and the 4 or 5 games you served up on a platter, you won’t be serving up anymore.

    The D will be even better when they’re not forced to win the game every week.

  2. The Browns went from promising right back to a dead-end organization with one outrageous trade. Mayo probably knows that they’re dead-end and they will be looking for more scapegoats over the next couple years.

    Here’s hoping he gets the full DC title in NE and keeps their defensive run of excellence going.

  3. The Browns organization is a hot mess – Cleveland will be at or near the bottom of standings next season.

    Who cares about the titles? It’s clear he’s getting a raise here and it’s well deserved. Whatever is working without the actual titles is working quite well.

    Lots of misinformation surrounds the Patriots for troll/money reasons to satisfy that demographics.

    Smart move by Mayo to not interview or go to a horrendous organization with guaranteed failure looming.

    2nd ranked D? Where did you get that from?

  6. Nobody requesting interviews for Steve Belechick seems a bit odd wouldn’t you think? Son of the GOAT? I mean Jeff Saturday head coached a team this year and baby Stevie doesn’t get a sniff?

    Their defense is overrated. The quality of the opposing QB’s overall weren’t very high.

    Position titles do matter. They matter a lot. Instead of being a Patriot homer, try looking it at from the viewpoint of a coach who wants to be upwardly mobile and have opportunities for advancement. Those opportunities are going to require offers from other teams.

  9. The overall 2nd rankee D was 2 ranked for a reason.

    +++++++++++++++++++

    Just curious, where does this “overall 2nd” come from? They were #11 on TPA and #8 on TYA.

    If you use different criteria, where was Belichick’s defense ranked during Brady’s era?

  10. It’s sad that other teams had to make a play for him before New England finally realized what they had in him. Good for him for basically telling them make me the guy or I walk. Unfortunately for Cleveland, just like with their front office whoever they get will probably be on the short list for a head coaching job next year so they’re basically going to rent someone if they’re any good. The worst part when you do well is everyone immediately raides your staff and front office for talent. That Cleveland playoff front office are getting GM jobs left and right and the only decent DC’s available are going to be head coaching candidates especially with the talent they have at defense. Joe Woods is literally the only person who could not get top 10 stats out of them out of the 3 coordinators they’ve had since the 2018 rebuild.

  11. The patriots have been completely exposed from the second Brady managed to pry that bloated leech belicheat off him.

    Of course all the spoiled fat ungrateful losers in boston who need to live through other men turned on him instantly. They deserve the decades of humiliating beatdown losses that have begun.

    Everyone who knows anything about football knew before the season that the patriots have been done from the moment Brady had enough of the cheating parasite sucking his blood and stealing the credit for his work.

    0 talent. Horrible FA and draft busts making millions upon millions upon millions of dollars. A loser baby armed bust QB who not only cannot play at the NFL level but is also one of the dirtiest, least respected cheaters in the whole league. A senile GM who couldn’t pick a player to save his life. A coach who cares more about giving make work jobs to his loser kids then winning games.

    No matter how desperately Kraft’s fluffer Goodell tries over and over to prop this disgraced cheating loser joke franchise up every year like Brady’s still there, their pathetic season ends in blowout humiliations every single time.

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer town.
