With so much going on with the Cleveland Browns after the dismissals of head coach Mike Pettine, general manager Ray Farmer and other front-office personnel, it’s not surprising that Browns insider Lane Adkins has been very busy in our Premium Member forums, both the Fast Lane and Ask the Insiders.
There are, of course, many questions about who the next Browns head coach might be, or at least the candidates for interview. But two big names bandied about may not want to come to Cleveland, or be a head coach at all right now.
With the firings of Ray Farmer, Morocco Brown and Bill Kuharich, what will be the pecking order in the front office to come?
The Browns want to hire a head coach before they move forward with a new general manager. Does that mean that owner Jimmy Haslam already has a coach in mind?
With Sashi Brown promoted to executive vice president of football operations, there are doubtlessly myriad questions about his background and qualifications, as well as what it means for the search for a new general manager. Lane tackles this here, here, here, and here.
And what does all this change mean for the players currently on the roster? Will high-priority free agents be retained?
What does it mean for the offensive side of the coaching staff, particularly coordinator John DeFilippo and quarterbacks coach Kevin O’Connell?
Back to the coaching search, could recently departed New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin have interest in the Browns? How about Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson? Jim Schwartz? Josh McDaniels?
