Patriots Grant Browns Permission to Interview McDaniels


Not as if it should come as a surprise, but the Cleveland Browns have been granted permission by the New England Patriots to interview offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels for their head coaching vacancy.

McDaniels has ties with Cleveland’s General Manager Mike Lombardi, resulting in him being atop their wish list.

Now it is unclear at this time as to when or if McDaniels will interview for the position. Odds are he waits until the Patriots season comes to a close considering they are entrenched in playoff preparation.

The Browns head-coaching job seems to be an enticing opening. They have one of the NFL’s better defenses, quality weapons in the passing game and are destined to draft a quarterback with a high pick in the 2014 draft. With all considered, taking over at the helm in Cleveland is much more attractive an opportunity than it was in years past.
