There was a new entrant in the Browns' coaching sweepstakes, but he was out before we knew it.
Greg Schiano interviewed for Cleveland's head coaching job Wednesday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source with knowledge of Schiano's schedule. However, he will not be hired, Rapoport added, per a source with knowledge of the Browns' thinking.
The Browns are the only team left with a head coaching vacancy and appeared to be waiting for Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase. But Gase pulled himself out of the running this week, and the Browns will interview Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine for a third time Thursday.
It's taken the Browns this long to find a new coach. There's no sense in rushing the process now.
