The Browns are looking very hard at bringing back Marty Schottenheimer to the place where he got his NFL head coaching start, team sources told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen.
Schottenheimer has been out of coaching since he was fired by the Chargers after a 14-2 season in 2006.
His resume and his desire to coach a team with some playoff potential could entice him to return, even though he has not stated publicly he's ready to come back.
With a regular-season record of 200-126-1 with Cleveland, Kansas City, Washington and San Diego, Schottenheimer is the most successful coach never to have reached the Super Bowl.
