Browns interested in Seahawks DC Dan Quinn for head coach, per report

Denver offensive coordinator Adam Gase may not even interview for the position.

The long search for someone willing to coach the Cleveland Browns may finally be over, as the team wants to interview Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, who has interest in the position, Ian Rapoport is reporting.

The Browns have gone after multiple candidates who have unilaterally rebuked the team, seeing the job as undesirable due to an ownership group unwilling to spend and very willing to fire coaches. Cleveland has gone through three head coaches since 2009 (including Rob Chudzinski, who was fired after just one season in 2013).

One such candidate is Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase, who reportedly may not even interview with the Browns due to his comfortability in Denver.

Quinn came to Seattle from the Florida Gators, where he served as the defensive coordinator as well. In 2009, Quinn was the associate head coach for the Seahawks, but has no head coaching experience as of yet. The Browns went 4-12 in the 2013 season.
