Browns coaching carousel: Report roundup

BEREA – Round and round we go. Where will the coaching carousel stop? Nobody knows - at least not now.

There are numerous reports regarding who the Browns are considering as their next head coach.

Here is a rundown of those reports:

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Browns have already interviewed Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn on Wednesday in Seattle. Quinn is in his first year as defensive coordinator with the Seahawks.

Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles is interviewing today according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Bowles was the secondary coach in Cleveland under Butch Davis. The Minnesota Vikings are rumored to also be interested in Bowles for their head coaching vacancy.

The Browns will interview New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels on Saturday, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The former Broncos head coach attended Canton McKinley high school. McDaniels also played college football at John Carroll University.

There are a few college coaches the Browns are rumored to be interested in as well including Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops. Tony Softli of St. Louis radio station ESPN 101 reported "Stoops may have the inside track on the Cleveland Browns opening." Stoops, from Youngstown, led the Sooners to a 45-31 Sugar Bowl win over Alabama on Thursday night. Softli has some front office experience worked in the NFL with the Carolina Panthers and St. Louis Rams.

Also in the mix, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn and Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin according to Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports.

Former Steelers head coach Bill Cowher does not want to roam the sidelines any time soon either. "I've never closed the door," Cowher told "CBS This Morning." "But it's highly unlikely any time in the near future you'll see me coach."
