Browns reportedly to interview Bisaccia
The Browns are reportedly set to interview an eighth candidate for their vacant head coaching position.
Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that the team has a Saturday interview set with Dallas Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia, who also served as the San Diego Chargers assistant head coach in 2012.
Bisaccia, 53, has 31 years of coaching experience, including 12 seasons in charge of NFL special teams units. He has never been a head coach.
On Thursday, the team reportedly interviewed Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, who’s led top-10 defenses in all five of his seasons as an NFL defensive coordinator. The 47-year-old Pettine was the Jets defensive coordinator for the previous four seasons before coming to Buffalo last offseason.
The others who have spoken with the Browns since they fired Rob Chudzinski on Dec. 29 are New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Ken Whisenhunt, who accepted the Tennessee Titans job, Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, Arizona defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, former Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak and Green Bay quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo, who earlier this week took the New York Giants’ offensive coordinator position. McDaniels and Bowles publicly removed their names from consideration.
