Dan Quinn says he was interested in Browns’ job http://t.co/ym7ylgWFmk

After his defense pummeled the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl, Seattle Seahawks’ defensive coordinator Dan Quinn came out and said that he was interested in being the head coach of the Cleveland Browns. After people criticized the team for waiting so long to hire a head coach, ultimately choosing Mike Pettine, the defensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills, there are already people second guessing the decision.
Kiley and Booms, the spectacular waste of prime radio time on 92.3 The Fan in the morning in the mold of ESPN’s First Take, have already suggested the Browns should hire Pettine and hire Quinn; a plausible and realistic scenario. On one hand, Quinn’s stock could not be higher at this moment in time while Adam Gase, believed to be the apple of the Browns eye by many in the media (Tony Grossi) could not be much lower right now.
So, the Browns were a bad franchise for waiting so long to get a head coach because no one wanted the job. Now, some will paint them as a bad team because they jumped the gun on hiring a head coach. The one thing that Quinn’s words do confirm is that he was interested and there was not this nonsense that he was another candidate that turned the Browns down for the job. In a decision between which member of the bald brotherhood they wanted, the Browns opted for Pettine. Hopefully, this is not a decision that is revisited down the road for the worse.
