Report: Mike Pettine to meet Browns again


Mike Pettine is to meet with the Cleveland Browns for the second time over their vacant head coaching position, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:

This would be the third interview for the Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator, who it seems is a favourite for the Browns job – though other ‘favourites’ such as Josh McDaniels and Adam Gase are also noticeably working for other teams still.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that there is another finalist scheduled to meet with the team on Thursday, and this is believed to be Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

The Browns head coaching search needs to come to an end soon, both to save the fans the extra stress and so that whoever does finally gets the job will have a chance to recruit coordinators and a coaching staff that is up to the job.

    Coach Mike Pettine, 3rd interview? Does that show how little you are
    wanted by The Sad, Bad Browns? This organization is so disjointed they
    fired their last coach after one year, ONE YEAR!! You are a great
    Defensive coach, the Browns have some good def. players, but will you as
    OC bring that collection around like you did with my Bills? Plus as OC
    your in charge of the whole team and your skills willbe s plit and will
    you want or even be able to handle a bad offense with a good (?)
    defense? I applaud how you got this opportunity to become an OC, but
    it’s the Browns?? Stay in Buffalo where you are valued and appreciated.
    The Browns are not doing either. A3rd interview must show you this is
    true!! GO BILLS!!

      You better thank God everyday that our organization is this bad, because it takes the focus off of your program there in Buffalo. You have been a cellar dweller as well since Kelly retired and anything sarcastic or any kind of trash talk is ill advised since winning in Buffalo is as natural as an oral bowel movement.

        I wrote an honest comment and took some stuff from you. Good for you, Not! The truth might be good, but it does hurt. Too bad for both sets of fans, yours and mine. Life is good and it get’s better if you accept the truth, not insult someone who speaks a truth that you don’t like or can handle!! Are you part of the Brown’s front office because your reply is based on your lie to yourself?? GO BILLS!!
