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. Jan 28 - 3:23 PM

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.

A source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter that Patriots OC Josh McDaniels and Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt are among the candidates for the Browns' head coaching vacancy.

SI's Peter King also reported Sunday that McDaniels is high on the list. It makes some sense as he's a favorite of GM Mike Lombardi and is from Barberton, OH, about 40 miles south of Cleveland. However, McDaniels has failed as both the head coach of the Broncos and offensive coordinator of the Rams, only finding real success when paired with Bill Belichick in New England. Whisenhunt is also thought to be on the Texans' list if they don't land Penn State's Bill O'Brien -- who figures to draw interest from the Browns as well.

Browns VP of player personnel Michael Lombardi's title has been changed to "general manager."

Former Chiefs director of pro personnel Ray Farmer has also been hired as assistant GM. Whatever Lombardi's title is, the former NFL Network talking head will be calling the personnel shots in Cleveland.

Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will be calling the plays for the Browns next season.

Head coach Rob Chudzinski -- a strong offensive mind in his own right -- called it an easy decision. "[Turner] is amazing at it," Chud said. Now free from the far-reaching burdens of head coaching, Turner will be able to focus on designing plays and coaching offense. He's certain to incorporate plenty of Chudzinski's philosophies, meaning an aggressive, vertical scheme that often features tight ends. Turner, who has coached the NFL rushing champ five times, also has a history of riding one back as a workhorse and he certainly has one to feature in Trent Richardson. "He's an amazing player," Norv said.

Browns CEO Joe Banner said hiring Chip Kelly was too big of a "gamble."

"We removed ourselves from the process," said Banner. "We really liked Chip. But you could see he was uncertain what he wanted to do. The fact he committed to Tampa Bay last year, backed out, then seemed all year to be leaning toward going to the NFL, then being so uncertain with us, we just felt it was too big a gamble. If there was no ambivalence, we may have offered him the job." Banner just sounds like a sore loser after losing out to his old pal Howie Roseman in Philly. If Kelly would have wanted to go to the Browns, Banner and company would have gladly handed him a blank check. Instead, they settled for an intriguing threesome of Rob Chudzinski, Norv Turner, and Ray Horton.

Browns hired NFL Network's Michael Lombardi as VP of player personnel.

Lombardi wasn't given the GM title, which leaves open the possibility that Chiefs director of pro personnel Ray Farmer could still be in the mix to rejoin president Joe Banner and Lombardi in the front office. This will be Lombardi's second stint at the head of player personnel, as he also ran the department in the early 1990s before and during the Bill Belichick regime. Although Lombardi has been out of the league since a 10-year run with the Raiders ended in 2007, he's been advising Banner for the past few months.
