Latest On Browns’ Coaching Search

The Browns plan to interview Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz on Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of (on Twitter) hears. After that, they’ll chat with Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski on Thursday and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels on Friday, according to’s Adam Schefter (Twitter link).

Schwartz, who once served as the Lions’ head coach, has been the Eagles’ DC since 2016. His first NFL job came with the (original) Browns, where he served as a scout from 1993-95.
