Schefter followed shortly after with this tweet.
One person who knows Josh McDaniels said he had “an awesome” meeting with Browns, but it isn’t right time for him to become a head coach.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 8, 2014
McDaniels was expected to be one of the top candidates for the position, so it looks like the Browns will have to go in a different direction for their third head coach in the last three years.
