The Browns' search for a new leader has come to an end after announcing on Thursday, that Mike Pettine has been hired in for the position.
After only one season with Rob Chudzinski, the Browns began to search for a new coach after firing him hours after the 2013 season ended.
Pettine wasn't an immediate choice for the Browns but looking at his recent New York and Buffalo defenses, there was something about them that stood out. They weren't very easy to beat, which leads to the Browns thinking that he is a great choice to lead their team.
The Browns talent on the defense fits Pettine's 3-4 background. The only problem is, defense wasn't an issue last season. After seeing only offensive names in their search for a coach, will fans be upset or doubtful about hiring a defensive coordinator as head coach?
Rapoport reported Tuesday that Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase pulled out of consideration in advance of the Super Bowl.
Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels from the New England Patriots met with the team but withdrew his name after meeting with them.
This week, the team was expected to meet with Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, but unexpectedly had conversations with former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano.
