Mike Pettine is to be introduced tonight as the 15th coach of the Cleveland Browns. The current Buffalo Defensive Coordinator will be a first time head coach with only other head coaching experience being at high school level. A surprise choice who was responsible for the Buffalo’s defence, which was second in the league in sacks. Other coaches were expected to be higher on the Browns list like Adam Gase and Josh McDaniels but both end up pulling out of the running for the job.
Coach Pettine is expected to stick to 3-4 defence with multiple different fronts similar to Dick Jauron’s. Alex van Pelt is reported to be high on their list for Offensive Coordinator. As to who will be his QB is unknown but he has said he will be prioritising it to become a winning team. With six probowlers there on the current roster there is a lot of talent and expectations will be high.
