The search for a new head coach for the Cleveland Browns has reportedly moved forward. Jimmy Haslam and Joe Banner plan to interview Marc Trestman.
He's a familiar face to Browns fans having served as the quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator during the Bernie Kosar era. He has been with Montreal since 2008, leading the Alouettes to two CFL titles in his five seasons. He also worked with current Browns quarterback, Brandon Weeden, prior to last year's draft.
ESPN Cleveland first reported Trestman's planned interview with the Browns.
The Browns had zeroed in on Oregon head coach Chip Kelly over the weekend, but moved on to other prospects. It turns out, despite overtures and lengthy talks with the Browns and Eagles, Kelly has decided to remain in Oregon.
The Browns last week interviewed former Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt and Cardinals defensive coordinator, Ray Horton. Colts' offensive coordinator Bruce Arians is also said to be on the list of possible candidates.
The Browns interviewed Syracuse coach Doug Marrone twice. Marrone has since signed on to be the head coach of the Buffalo Bills.
There's plenty of competition for coaching prospects as several teams are looking to fill vacancies.
