NFL.com’s Ian Rapport is reporting that if former Browns DC Mel Tucker doesn’t get the Jaguars job, he could land in Cleveland. Mel Tucker plans to interview with #Jaguars for their HC job, source confirmed. No date set. 1 other possibility: Back w #Browns for Chud — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 12, 2013   In 2007 and 2008, Mel Tucker was on #Browns staff. He served as DC in 2008. Ran a 4-3 with Jags this year, a 3-4 with Browns in 2008 — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 12, 2013 It’s interesting that Tucker has ran both the 3-4 and the 4-3 in the past, it shows he’s not married to one system. The last thing I’d like to see is the Browns switch, yet again, from the 3-4 to the 4-3 and have to overturn their defensive personnel. Tucker, 41 and born in Cleveland, was the defensive coordinator in Jacksonville last year. The Jags were 30th in yards allowed and gave up an average of 27.8 points per game (tied for 29th).  In 2008, Tucker’s Browns gave up a middle-of-the-pack 21.9 ppg but were 26th in total yards allowed. Tucker began his coaching career at Michigan State, under that Nick Saban guy. Anyone heard of him? [Related: Rod Chudzinski's Press Conference Ushers In Another Process]
