Pep Hamilton officially leaves Browns; could Greg Roman replace him?

San Diego Chargers v San Francisco 49ers

Monday evening, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Pep Hamilton has officially left the Cleveland Browns to take a job at Michigan under Jim Harbaugh.

The dust had barely settled on the news when Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported the first candidate who could replace Hamilton in Cleveland: Greg Roman.

While he was with Harbaugh in San Francisco from 2011-2014, Roman drew positive reviews. He became the Bills' offensive coordinator in 2015 and started 2016 there, but was a scapegoat firing at the start of the season. Roman is a John Carroll University graduate, which gives him some ties to the area.
