The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including a sign that Jimmy Haslam is letting John Dorsey do his own coaching search
Jimmy Haslam is the owner of the Cleveland Browns and therefore can assert himself wherever he wants to in the organization. We have seen this in the past, and the results haven’t always been pretty.
This is why so many were nervous when they heard he wanted to be heavily involved in the upcoming coaching search. Then, we all took a sigh of relief when it was reported that this hire is all on the shoulders of John Dorsey.
Still, there’s always a concern that Haslam won’t be able to resist going after someone he falls for and with news breaking that Peyton Manning recommended Adam Gase to the team, there was concern Haslam could try and make an impulse hire.

Then on Tuesday, we again got a report that the team doesn’t plan to interview Gase, which is a good sign considering how much his players in Miami — including current Brown Jarvis Landry — despised playing for him.

Cleveland Browns News
After Mary Kay Cabot reported there were no plans to interview Gase, Dan Justik wrote about what that means for the upcoming search. He’s encouraged that this could lead to Dorsey fully vetting all the candidates and finding the right coach. Haslam hired Dorsey for a reason and it’s time to let him do his thing.
"A day after Cleveland ended a promising turnaround season following a winless 2017, general manager John Dorsey said he will interview interim coach Gregg Williams and offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens in his search for the Browns’ ninth full-time coach since 1999."
Gregg Williams seemed like a placeholder at first, but after going 5-3, he’s a legitimate option — although it seems Dorsey wants to look elsewhere. Freddie Kitchens will also be an interesting candidate as the offense really clicked with him calling the plays.
Our own Dan Justik takes a long look at every coaching candidate for the Browns and goes over their qualifications for the job. With every new name coming into the mix for the job, this list will be updated, so check back for more information as it develops.
Matt Miller released a mock draft and has the Browns making a rather interesting pick in DeAndre Baker out of Georgia. Baker is a solid corner, but it seems like Cleveland would look elsewhere as there are bigger needs on the roster than at defensive back.
