Now the question is, "how big will the list of candidates for the Browns' offensive coordinator vacancy grow to be?"

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE

Earlier today, we learned that Kyle Shanahan will interview on Wednesday for the Cleveland Browns' vacant offensive coordinator role. According to Albert Breer of, the Browns will be interviewing another candidate for the job on Thursday: Oakland Raiders quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo.

DeFilippo's background has always been working with quarterbacks. He held the role of quarterbacks coach for the Raiders from 2007-2008, and again from 2012-present. In between, he was the New York Jets' quarterbacks coach for one season in 2009, the same year that Mike Pettine first joined the Jets as their defensive coordinator.

Breer also noted that the Browns had shown some interest in Jim Hostler, wide receivers coach of the Baltimore Ravens, but also added that the interest in him doesn't seem to be as strong. Hostler was hoping to become the Ravens' offensive coordinator before losing out to Gary Kubiak.
