Head Coach Search Continues for Cleveland Browns
An eventful Tuesday for the Browns as they looked for the next coach of the franchise.
Jimmy Haslam, Joe Banner, Mike Lombardi and Alec Scheiner met with candidate Mike Pettine, the defensive coordinator of the Bills, for more than four hours in Mobile, Alabama, but there are no indications that Pettine was offered the Browns job.
It was the second interview for the Buffalo coach, who had just finished his first year in Buffalo after four seasons as the Jets defensive coordinator.
Pettine is the son of Pennsylvania high school football coaching legend, Mike Pettine, Sr.
Earlier on Tuesday, Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase took himself out of the running for the job.
The Browns have plans to talk a second time to Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. That is likely to happen this weekend in the New York-New Jersey area.
Fox Sports reported that Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter may also interview with the Browns.
Rob Chudzinski was fired as the Browns head coach on Dec. 29. after just one season.
