The Cleveland Browns’ ugly head coaching search seems as though it’s finally coming to an end. After getting burned by almost everyone in the NFL, officially dispelling any notion that the Browns knew what they were doing, the search to replace Rob Chudzinki has led Cleveland to Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.

While there is no official deal in place, and the Browns are apparently interviewing another candidate on Wednesday, reports out of Buffalo from the beat writers seem to indicate that Pettine will be on his way to Cleveland this week.


That’s hardly a concrete report, but the feeling seems to be that the Browns will hire Pettine and won’t wait until the Super Bowl is over to hire Dan Quinn. Logic also suggests that the Browns will be hiring Pettine this week, as waiting until after the Super Bowl to hire anyone who’s not on one of the Super Bowl teams is an asinine idea.

Either way, it appears the head coaching nightmare is over for the Browns — well at the least the part about finding a head coach is.
