In what seemed like literally minutes after the Cleveland Browns fired their head coach, Rob Chudzinski, after just one year at the helm, word began to spread that the team would be interested in bringing in former Denver Broncos head coach, and current New England Patriots offensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels to fill the void. He and Browns GM Mike Lombardi are said to have a great relationship with one another.
Now, NFL.com’s Ian Rappoport is reporting that there might be a lot of truth to that rumor because apparently the team is “pushing” to interview the former head coach, most famously known for drafting Tim Tebow in the first round of the NFL Draft:

There’s also a little more to go along with this scenario. With McDaniel’s currently being in New England, it’s also speculated that the team would also then work a deal to get Patriots backup QB Ryan Mallett into town, killing two birds with one stone by getting themselves a coach they’re comfortable with plus a QB they desperately need.
