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

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cleveland Browns are unlikely to be able to hire Gary Kubiak to fill their vacancy for offensive coordinator. There is no indication as to what would prevent this matchup from happening, but if Schefter is right, the Browns will need to look elsewhere.
The former Houston Texans’ head coach is attractive because he has been able to put together a few effective offenses in his career both with the Texans and Denver Broncos. Browns head coach Mike Pettine has said he would like to add some head coaching experience on the staff and presumably, that would best be added to the offensive side of the ball.
The Browns have talent on offense but have a big need at quarterback. They like Brian Hoyer, but it is difficult to imagine they will bet their jobs on him at this point. Whoever ends up being the coordinator would likely have some input on the quarterback the Browns pick as well as how they want to mold the talent the Browns do have around them.
