Despite Browns’ interest, it is considered unlikely that former Texans HC Gary Kubiak will become Cleveland’s next offensive coordinator.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Cleveland Browns are unlikely to hire Gary Kubiak to be their offensive coordinator. It is unclear what the issue would be that would prevent the Browns from bringing in the former Houston Texans‘ head coach to run the offense under Mike Pettine. Kubiak may not be in a hurry to coach again or he may simply not like the fit in Cleveland.
The Browns have talent on the offensive side of the ball, but so much comes down to the quarterback position in the NFL and the Browns currently do not have one. They have and like Brian Hoyer but are a virtual lock to pick a quarterback in May. The good news for a potential coordinator is that the Browns have the fourth pick in the draft and the potential ammunition to move and get the guy they want.
However, the Browns may need to look elsewhere for their offensive coordinator.
