Latest On Browns’ Coaching Search

The game of head coaching musical chairs has left the Browns without a seat (er, head coach). After the Redskins, Cowboys, Panthers, and Giants got their men, the Browns are forging ahead with their own 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.

The Browns don’t necessarily have to rush to make a hire now that the league’s four other openings have been addressed. Still, Schefter hears that they want to make their choice by Saturday.

      Jimmy Haslem expects you to buy your own clipboard but you will get a blindfold and cigarette at the end of next season at no cost.

  1. Let the national press interview Meyer, McDaniel and LaFleur since they’re the only people who think they’re going to get an interview. The Browns have never said those 3 were going to be interviewed, yet you refuse to change your story.

  2. Julio Franco's Birth Certificate

    So I guess this means they put all of their eggs in the Josh McDaniels basket. Unless he pulls an Indy and flakes out, or Jimmy plays hardball with him, which means they will end up with some Assistant Coach turned Head Coach who will be fired by 2022.

    The Browns. Same old, same old since 1999.
