Nothing is official from the Browns, but it sounds like he's expected to be announced by week's end.

This makes sense given the Browns need for a strong presence coaching QBs. He's also a Youngstown, OH native, and has connections to HC Mike Pettine.
We'll keep it updated as we go along, but it sounds like the search may be finally over!
What do you all think about John DeFilippo being the new OC?
