Checking in on Browns' coaching search

At the end of the BCS National Championship, Mike Tirico asked his Monday Night Football and (for that night) radio partner Jon Gruden if he would return to coaching in 2011. “No, I’ll be back with you,” Gruden said.

Gruden ostensibly wants to watch his high school senior son play one more year of football. His son said a few months ago that the plan for his dad was to return to coaching in 2012 and take either the 49ers or Browns job.

Obviously, those jobs will almost certainly not be available now. The Niners gave Jim Harbaugh a five-year, $25 million contract last week. As for the Browns…

Whispers around the NFL are that Rams offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur is the leading candidate. Prior to joining the Rams in 2009, Shurmur spent 10 years as an offensive assistant in Philadelphia. The Eagles run a West Coast style system that Mike Holmgren prefers (and likely requires).

Another offensive-minded head coach in the mix is Mike Mularkey. The Falcons offensive coordinator interviewed for the job on Saturday (the Browns visited him in Atlanta). But according to Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the process was rushed (Mularkey sort of had a lot on his plate – you know, with the playoffs and everything).

Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell has also interviewed, and there are rumblings about former Bears/Dolphins/Pitt Panthers head coach Dave Wannstedt. It is believed that Wannstedt is not necessarily a head coaching candidate, but rather, a possibility as a defensive coordinator.
