NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Browns have four candidates at this point-
Aaron Kromer is the offensive line coach of the New Orleans Saints. He is a Miami, Ohio guy and was a finalist for the Boston College job. Kromer served as the Saints’ head coach during the first six games of the season because of suspensions to Sean Payton and Joe Vitt.
If you add this piece to other reports, it would seem the other Pro coach would be Josh McDaniels and the college coaches would be Chip Kelly and Bill O’Brien. For whatever that is worth.
