NFL Coaching Candidates: Cleveland Browns

 Wild on Sports
A look at the most likely candidates to be the next head coach of the Cleveland Browns.

Front Runner:  
Chip Kelly
The Oregon coach has been linked to several teams in the past few days but the Browns seem to be the most aggressive at this point for his services. Reports are surfacing that Browns CEO Joe Banner has traveled to Arizona to interview Kelly, who is preparing the Ducks for the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. Kelly is best known for his uptempo offense that has been mimicked by many in both the NFL and college ranks this season.  The Browns seem to be focusing on the college ranks in their search instead of an NFL retread. It would probably take a sizable contract to get him to leave Oregon but if Kelly wants the job it is his to take.

In Contention:
Doug Marrone
Marrone, a former Saints Offensive Coordinator, is currently the head coach at Syracuse. He was previously in the NFL with the Titans, Jets and Saints. In his three seasons as O-Coordinator the Saints finished 1st, 4th & 1st in the NFL in offense. Marrone has proven himself as a program builder having taken Syracuse from a bottom of the barrel D1 program to a team that has won Bowl games in 3 of 4 years. With young talent already in place Morrone may be just the type of coach to get Cleveland going in the right direction.  has also been linked to Buffalo and Philadelphia.

Also in Consideration:
Bill O'Brien - Penn St HC
Nick Saban - Alabama HC
Jon Gruden - ESPN Anaylst
