Browns coaching search: Team has "some level of interest" in Greg Schiano per Keith Britton

According to Keith Britton, the producer of Bull and Fox on 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland reported that the Cleveland Browns have “some level of interest in Greg Schiano.”  Schiano, the former head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was fired after a 4-12 season that came with a number of huge stories that proved problematic for the team and Schiano.

The most notable issue with Schiano was the ugly, ugly situation with former quarterback Josh Freeman, now with the Minnesota Vikings.  There was also the MRSA outbreak, which is obviously not Schiano’s fault.  After an 0-8 start, the Bucs led by rookie quarterback Mike Glennon were able to go on a run at the end of the year that made some people question whether Schiano would actually be let go.

Schiano also was the head coach of Rutgers and has connections to Bill Belichick and Mike Lombardi, prompting the interest.  It remains to be seen if this name was simply thrown out there or it is more.  This would be the fourth head coach the Browns would have interviewed who had previous head coaching experience in the NFL.  Josh McDaniels, Ken Whisenhunt and Mike Munchak were the othe three.

      Seems unlikely and more of a due diligence thing if true, but I suppose anything is possible.

  • Pridenpoise

    Leave it to the Browns to have interest in that bum.

    Hopefully they are looking at him for maybe a coordinator of some kind or just plain line or corner back coach? I’m not sure what his area of speciality is?

    Great coach in a terrible situation. Raheem had this place a mess. Schiano needed more time to clean it up. And no he didn’t have the players needed to succeed. Dline needs 3 more players. Oline was falling apart.
