The Cleveland Browns head coaching search could be nearing an end and Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine is expected to be the man who will take over the team. It’s been a wild coaching search for the Browns, so there should be some sense of relief with the fact that it could all be over soon.
According to multiple reports, the Browns are working out a deal with Pettine and they are expected to offer him the head coaching job today.
From ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen:
Browns expected to offer their HC job to Bills DC Mike Pettine, per multiple league sources, via @mortreport and me. Need to work out deal.

After numerous candidates turned down the Browns job, Pettine was the only man to have mutual interest with the team.
