    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.

    I wonder how long the Browns will give this guy? Season and a half? Probably should be updating his resume in a couple weeks just to be safe.

    Somebody on Twitter suggested Pettine not buying a house in Cleveland but just rent one.

    Yeah, it seems like the Bills' Defensive Coordinator is about the best the Browns could do.

    Most people only get a couple of chances as a head coach in the NFL, if that. Unless you feel that the Browns are the only opportunity that you'll ever get, it really doesn't make much sense to go to a place where you are almost guaranteed to fail and stain your resume. This is why Adam Gase (OC -Den) and Josh McDaniels (OC - Pats) aren't going there. Why would they want to lose a bunch of games as a HC of the Browns when they can pad their resumes by being the OC for all time great quarterbacks? Those guys are young and will get better opportunities down the road.

    I think the Browns are literally the least desirable franchise in the entire league.
