Browns Interviewing Pettine Again, Have Talked to 49ers About Assistants

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

The Browns will have a second interview with the Bills' Mike Pettine, and are asking about some of the 49ers' assistant coaches.

We may be getting closer to finding out who the next head coach of the Cleveland Browns will be. After being turned away by Adam Gase, the Browns already reached out to Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Cleveland will conduct a second interview with Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine tonight:

Mary Kay Cabot says that interview will take place in Mobile, Alabama, the site of the Senior Bowl. That's not all the Browns are doing, though. Per a 49ers beat writer, Cleveland has inquired about some of San Francisco's assistant coaches. It is unclear whether the assistants were being contacted for head coaching interviews, or for higher roles in Cleveland (i.e. a defensive line coach jumping to a coordinator position).

Yesterday, reports from ESPN said that the Browns were "doing background work" on 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula.
