The Cleveland Plain Dealer confirms Patriots OC Josh McDaniels remained in the running for the Browns' head-coaching vacancy "right up until the end."
There was a big to-do when McDaniels "withdrew" from consideration to replace Rob Chudzinski, but he reportedly requested to re-enter the mix "within about 24 hours." According to reporter Mary Kay Cabot, McDaniels' candidacy was a point of contention between since fired GM Mike Lombardi and CEO Joe Banner. Cabot believes McDaniels was likely the Browns' other "mystery finalist" alongside Mike Pettine, and not Seahawks DC Dan Quinn. McDaniels should hop right back on the coaching carousel in 2015.

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi reports the Browns had "more conversations" with Patriots OC Josh McDaniels this week.

The "conversations" ostensibly concerned Cleveland's head-coaching vacancy, as Grossi reports McD is "possibly back in (the) mix" to succeed Rob Chudzinski. Bills DC Mike Pettine continues to be viewed as the favorite, but there's been more than one indication the Browns aren't in love with that idea. GM Mike Lombardi does love McDaniels, and we suspect he'd prefer him to Pettine.

According to Profootballtalk, "at least one league insider" believes Patriots OC Josh McDaniels could still end up the Browns' head coach.

It's hard to believe McDaniels would go back on his word after so publicly committing to the Patriots for 2014, but stranger things have happened. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, McDaniels only withdrew his name from consideration to replace Rob Chudzinski after learning he wasn't the frontrunner for the job. The odds are high McDaniels remains with the Pats for 2014, but as the Chip Kelly saga proved last year, anything is possible.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Patriots OC Josh McDaniels has withdrawn his name from consideration to be the Browns' next head coach.

Per Schefter's source, McDaniels had "an awesome" interview with the Browns over the weekend, but it "isn't the right time for him to become a head coach." McDaniels knows he likely only has one more head-coaching shot after his disaster run in Denver, so he needs to make sure it's the right one. Cleveland doesn't have a quarterback or a running back, the Browns brass seems to be a bit dysfunctional, and McDaniels already has a cushy gig coaching Tom Brady. Taking all those things into account, McDaniels is going to keep waiting. He's only 37 years old and could be in line to succeed Bill Belichick.

The Browns are scheduled to interview Patriots OC Josh McDaniels for their head-coaching vacancy Saturday.

McDaniels is considered the favorite for the job thanks to his ties to northeast Ohio and affection of GM Mike Lombardi. The bigger question is if he's willing to leave his job with the Patriots for The Factory of Sadness. The interview will take place in the New England area as McDaniels prepares for the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Other Browns candidates reportedly include Cardinals DC Todd Bowles, Seahawks DC Dan Quinn, Broncos OC Adam Gase, Auburn HC Gus Malzahn and Vanderbilt HC James Franklin.

The Patriots have granted the Browns permission to interview OC Josh McDaniels for their head-coaching vacancy.

That interview will likely take place this week, as McDaniels is only allowed to interview for head-coaching jobs up through Sunday due to the Patriots being in the playoffs. Early indications are that McDaniels is the overwhelming favorite to take over as Rob Chudzinki's successor in Cleveland.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns are "pushing" to interview Patriots OC Josh McDaniels for their head-coaching vacancy.

Per RapSheet, the soonest McDaniels can interview is January 5. Browns GM Mike Lombardi is known to be a huge fan of McDaniels, penning a defense of McD's failed tenure as the Broncos' head coach while Lombardi worked for NFL.com. McDaniels is the tentative favorite to be Cleveland's next head coach.
