Cleveland Browns expected to interview Josh McDaniels Saturday


The Cleveland Browns are actively searching for their next head coach and New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is considered the favorite to land the job. On Saturday, McDaniels will get his opportunity to impress the Browns front office as he heads in for an interview.

Chris Mortensen of ESPN passed along the news.

While McDaniels is the favorite to land the job, Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase and Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles are also in the mix.

If McDaniels lands the job, prepare to hear discussions about the Browns looking to swing a trade with the Patriots for back up quarterback Ryan Mallett.

McDaniels has always been a fan of Mallett’s talents and the Browns could benefit from improving under center. It would be a match made in heaven and the Browns have the arsenal of picks to make a deal, so prepare for the trade winds to be swirling if Cleveland lands the head coach that they are targeting.
