Browns reach a deal with Mike Pettine, have a coach now
Our long national nightmare is over.
The Cleveland Browns have a coach.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns have reached a deal with Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine to become their head coach.
That brings to a close a long and winding search to find a replacement for one-and-done Rob Chudzinski.
Pettine brings a different approach to the job, and wasn’t among the first crop of names mentioned for the job. But he flew into Cleveland today and apparently has struck a deal.
