The Browns will interview Bills senior offensive assistant Jim Hostler for their offensive-coordinator vacancy.
Hostler has ties to Mike Pettine from their time in Baltimore. He also served as the 49ers' offensive coordinator in 2007. Hostler joins a list of candidates that includes former Bears coach Marc Trestman, Raiders senior offensive assistant Al Saunders, Jets RB coach Anthony Lynn, Raiders QB coach John DeFilippo, and Browns TE coach Brian Angelichio.

The Browns will interview TEs coach Brian Angelichio for their offensive-coordinator vacancy.

Angelichio joined the Browns' staff last season. Before that, he was the TEs coach at Rutgers (2011) and for the Bucs (2012-2013) under Greg Schiano. He's never called plays at the NFL level. Angelichio was the OC at Ithaca College from 2000-2005. It'd be an underwhelming hire for offensively-challenged Cleveland.

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi considers Bears QBs coach Matt Cavanaugh the favorite to become the Browns' offensive coordinator.

Cavanaugh and coach Mike Pettine go way back. Cavanaugh is the one who got Pettine in the NFL via an assistant job with the Ravens in 2002. The two have known each other for more than 20 years. Cavanaugh would be an uninspiring hire after recent stints with the Jets and Bears, but maybe he's learned some things from ex-Bears coach Marc Trestman, who is also on the OC radar in Cleveland.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Raiders QBs coach John DeFilippo is a candidate for the Browns' offensive-coordinator vacancy.

DeFilippo was also a candidate for coach Mike Pettine's staff in 2014. Only 36, DeFilippo worked alongside Pettine with the Jets.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports ex-Bears QBs coach Matt Cavanaugh is "on the radar" for the Browns' offensive-coordinator vacancy.

Cavanaugh has a "long history" with Browns coach Mike Pettine. Jay Cutler regressed on Cavanaugh's watch in 2014, while he hasn't served as an NFL coordinator since the early 2000s with the Ravens, so it wouldn't exactly be an inspiring hire.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Browns will interview Raiders QBs coach John DeFelippo for their offensive coordinator vacancy Thursday.

The Browns have since confirmed the news. NFL Network's Albert Breer first reported Cleveland's interest in DeFelippo late Monday night. It would be an underwhelming hire, but coach Mike Pettine and DeFelippo worked together with the Jets in 2009. Quarterbacks that DeFelippo has worked with at his various NFL stops include JaMarcus Russell, Mark Sanchez, Carson Palmer, Terrelle Pryor, and Matt McGloin. In other words, DeFelippo doesn't have a great history of success. We'd consider him a long shot.

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports the Browns have "shown some interest" in Raiders QBs coach John DeFelippo regarding their offensive coordinator vacancy.

DeFelippo, 35, has been the quarterbacks coach in Oakland the past two seasons. He also coached the Raiders' quarterbacks from 2007-2008. In between, DeFelippo coached QBs with the Jets (2009) and at San Jose State (2010-2011). It would be a definite out-of-the-box hire for the Browns. We'd like to see Cleveland bring in a more experienced offensive mind, considering Mike Pettine is a first-time head coach and has a defensive background.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer mentions Bears QBs coach Matt Cavanaugh as a potential candidate to fill the Browns' offensive coordinator vacancy.

The paper is simply throwing names against the wall, but Cavanaugh stood out. He and coach Mike Pettine have a connection that runs deep. Cavanaugh helped Pettine land his first NFL job with the Ravens in the early-2000s. Cavanaugh was Baltimore's OC from 1999-2004. Pettine and Cavanaugh then worked together with the Jets. Cavanaugh just wrapped up his first season as Bears QBs coach and got a combined big year out of Jay Cutler and Josh McCown.

LSU OC Cam Cameron told the school that he is "not going anywhere" and plans on staying at LSU "for a long time."

Cameron was said to be on the Browns' OC radar, but it doesn't appear he has any interest in jumping back into the NFL after a successful 2013 campaign in college. The Browns are also eyeballing ex-Titans OC Dowell Loggains, either to replace Norv Turner as coordinator or coach their quarterbacks.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Browns are considering LSU OC Cam Cameron and ex-Titans OC Dowell Loggains for their offensive coordinator job.

Cameron doesn't have a strong reputation among NFL observers, but his LSU offense made a spectacular leap in 2013 as Cameron remade himself into a more aggressive offensive mind. Loggains was fired along with Mike Munchak in Tennessee. He had Jake Locker playing some of the best football of his playing career before 2013 injuries. Either would be a sensible hire in Cleveland.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Packers RBs coach Alex Van Pelt is high on Bills DC Mike Pettine's list as a potential OC candidate should Pettine get the Browns head-coaching job.

Van Pelt, 43, played quarterback in the NFL from 1993-2003 and has coached mainly quarterbacks before becoming Green Bay's running backs coach in 2012. He was the OC for the Bills back in 2009 under Dick Jauron and Perry Fewell. There's some speculation that Van Pelt could shift to QBs coach in Green Bay because Ben McAdoo left to become the Giants OC.

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has pleaded for patience with the team's coaching search.

"We have purposefully been very methodical in our approach," Haslam said in a Wednesday letter to season-ticket holders. "We believe it is very important to stay disciplined to this process and to interview all of the candidates on our list. We are strongly committed to finding the right person to coach the Cleveland Browns." Haslam's letter comes after the Browns were reportedly spurned by Patriots OC Josh McDaniels and Cardinals DC Todd Bowles. The team is thought to be waiting on Broncos OC Adam Gase, though's Mike Silver has hinted it's no sure thing Gase will bolt Denver. Of the six teams to fire their head coach, Cleveland is the only one yet to find a replacement.

Citing conversations with people around the league, NFL Network's Albert Breer says the feeling is the Browns' head-coaching job is viewed as "radioactive."

"Tough spot for them," added Breer of the Browns, who were quickly spurned by Patriots OC Josh McDaniels. The Browns have an alleged-criminal owner and kicked Rob Chudzinski aside after one year on the job, also letting outstanding coordinators Ray Horton and Norv Turner leave without a fight. There is no franchise quarterback or running back on the roster. It's not surprising coaches around the league aren't lining up to succeed Chudzinski.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Browns are not expected to interview Jim Tressel for their head-coaching vacancy.

The Akron Beacon-Journal confirms no meeting has been scheduled. FOX Sports 1350's Joe Dunn reported on Friday that the Browns were expected to meet with Tressel next week, but that's yet to be confirmed by the team. Tressel is currently serving as an executive vice president at the University of Akron and hasn't coached at the college level since resigning from Ohio State in 2010.

FOX Sports 1350's Joe Dunn reports the Browns will interview ex-Ohio State coach Jim Tressel for their head-coaching job next week.

Tressel is currently the "Vice President of Strategic Engagement" at the University of Akron. He resigned as Buckeyes head coach following the 2010 season after NCAA violations. Tressel's only NFL experience came as a consultant for Bill Polian's Colts in 2011. The interview may be to appease restless Browns fans, many of whom are Ohio State fans and have an affinity for Tressel.
