They're not calling this a done deal YET - but Whisenhunt was called back for a 2nd interview and completed that today. Word is if you're asked back - its "strong to very likely".
He may be back in our division after all.

sorry to hear that. Whiz is a very good offensive mind and he could develop the team if he gets a good qb

Whoever takes over as coach of the Browns, gets the 6th pick overall, which ain't too bad to start rebuilding with.

The new owner of the Browns is a known and avid Steelers fan, so him pursuing Whisenhunt makes sense.

He was a pretty decent coach, all things considered, and the Browns could do worse (and have).

They also get the rest of the Browns, though, as well as having to admit they're hoping Cleveland wins. That's a loss no matter how you spin it.

Go for it - -think about it....Tomlin vs. The Whiz twice a year - the crips and bloods war on here if he goes to Cleveland would be very entertaining

I agree, it would be quite the show on this forum if the Whiz indeed becomes the next head of the Cleveland Browns. I'm looking forward to it already.:popcorn:

He has a decent QB, good Line and nice RB to build around

and a good defense. The QB is still going to be the issue in Cleveland.

Thank God!!!... that means that it is not Nick Saban.

If Saban went o Celveland, the AFC North woudl be in trouble. He would ahve a great O-line, a pro-bowl RB, and a solid defense... which are his three main loves. As in: he would have already had the core of his team... and he would ahve turned that franchise around. Again, whew!!!

Don't say Saben couldn't be a good coach in the League. But theres a diffrence between College and the NFL. Having the best O-Line in the nation where every Coordinator has to figure some plan out or having a good O-Line in the NFL are big diffrences.

the Browns are slowly building a very good team, although they still haven't found that franchise QB - apparently, at seasons end this year, they're not happy with Weeden either, according to sources.
They've already assembled an OL and a DL that is much bigger, much stronger, and WAY more physical than ours.

Yep

A Browns spokesman confirmed Chudzinski's hiring Thursday night and said he will be introduced at a news conference on Friday.

Chudzinski will target former San Diego Chargers coach Norv Turner to be his offensive coordinator, a source told ESPN.

2 years

Thats what i'm thinking.

I don't like this hire for them - although i could end up being wrong. I believe, after all these coaches who aren't working out, that the Browns need (and could really use) a dominant, LEADER of men, a "Pat Riley/Doc Rivers/Bill Cowher" kind of person. Someone who not only take charge of the team with an iron hand, but who will also take charge of the city and rejuvinate the city.

Guess we'll see.

Don't forget the Browns have +$40M to spend on FA's....while we tread water again

didn't know that, but I did hear that they have a lot of rookie contracts ending in the next year or so, but I don't know anything specific.

If they do it right, they'll be able to put a good team together, if they do it how they normally do, they'll let the team fall apart and go back to normal Browns football.

didn't know that.



Bengals and Browns both have well over $40M to spend...



With the most cap space for 2013, the Bengals have their eyes on their money.


The Cincinnati Bengals saved $8.5 million of cap room in 2012 and made the playoffs for the second consecutive year. They have $55.1 million of room.

The Cleveland Browns saved $14.3 million of room in 2012 and now have $48.9 million.

After being tight against the cap in 2012, the Indianapolis Colts now have $46 million of room.

The Steelers are $10.8M over

You will see how fast that will go down when they re-sign their D-Line, AJ and Dalton the next few years.

I thought the Bengals had a pretty good draft class last year, it seems like their FO is doing a thing. Yeah it is scary how much money they have right now.

The Bengals and Browns having that much cap space shouldn't scare anyone. You can't buy championships - ask the Eagles.
