The Cleveland Browns are trying their best, it would seem, to fill their head coaching vacancy that was created this past week when they fired Rob Chudzinski after just one season of work.
According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, they’re reportedly down to their top two in the forms of New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops:

Should the Browns take McDaniels, that would mark his second stint as a head coach in the National Football League. He spent just two seasons as head coach of the Denver Broncos from 2009-10, but was fired during that ’10 campaign after the team got off to a 3-9 start.
Stoops’ name has picked up a lot of steam in the past few days, especially after he led his team to a remarkable upset of the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night. Also, it’s being said that Stoops has showed some interest in joining the NFL ranks.
