Despite the fact that the Eagles got Chip Kelly and the Browns didn’t, the Browns are apparently moving forward trying to put a first class staff together around Rob Chudzinski. Pro Football Talk has the news that the Browns will be interviewing former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris for the opening. Morris had a rocky ending to his tenure in Tampa as head coach, but few doubt his abilities as a defensive coach. Most recently he’s been the defensive backs coach for the Washington Redskins this past season. As Mr. Florio points out the Browns still have Dick Jauron under contract. Oddly enough, Jauron’s name hasn’t even been mentioned anywhere so far this off-season. I didn’t really expect his name to surface in relation to the head coaching positions, but as those were filled, mostly with offensive names, I’m surprised we haven’t heard his name even once for a defensive coordinator spot in transition. If you’re wondering about Morris’ ability to be coordinator, it might be noteworthy to find out that Morris assumed the defensive playcalling duties during the fourth quarter of a game against the Rams this season at the request of head coach Mike Shanahan following disagreements with D-coordinator Jim Haslett.
