Jim Caldwell Interviews For Browns’ HC Job

Jim Caldwell became the second candidate to interview for the Browns’ head coaching job, doing so on Wednesday. The Browns announced this meeting took place; it follows interim HC Gregg Williams‘ interview.

Caldwell has also interviewed for the Packers’ HC job and will meet with the Jets about their job opening.

The former Colts and Lions head coach did not work in the NFL in 2018, joining John Fox and Chuck Pagano — also fired after the ’17 season — in that regard. The Lions took a step back after Caldwell’s exit, falling from back-to-back 9-7 seasons to 6-10 in Matt Patricia‘s first year.

The Browns are slated to interview interim OC Freddie Kitchens, Mike McCarthy, Brian Flores, Kevin Stefanski and Dan Campbell. They are expected to meet with Mike Munchak, with Colts coordinators Nick Sirianni and Matt Eberflus receiving interview requests.

While Caldwell, 63, has been fired twice, and served less than five years in both Indianapolis and Detroit, he has a career record of 62-50 and was the first head coach to guide the Lions to multiple playoff berths since Bobby Ross in the late 1990s.

    Would be smart to just hire Gregg Williams. Something just clicked with him leading the team.

        Ok, I call bullshit. You aren’t allowed to use the words “Browns” and “smart” in the same sentence or use the second as a verb to desceibe the first. They’ll find a way to remain a trainwreck.

    His record is fine, but boy does he have the exact same face whether its a great game or call, or a a bad one. He just stares blankly.

    Only thing that bothers me about Williams staying on is defense wasn’t as good with his son as DC

    Browns should have interviewed gase , lowkey hoping my boy Freddie kitchens gets the job

    • JJB0811

      He sucks. Never could build a a running or passing game. Sorta important for being a offensive minded coach.

    The Peter principle will apply to Greg Williams if made into a full time HC, I’d be willing to bet on that. Guy is a good/proven coordinator similar to Wade Phillips, no more.

    So basically the only minority candidate the Browns won’t interview might be P-Diddy.
