Josh McDaniels a Front Runner to Coach the Browns in 2013?

Browns CEO Joe Banner said yesterday he would act quickly after the season on the futures of GM Tom Heckert and head coach Pat Shurmur.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the most common is that Banner will hire former Eagles employee Mike Lombardi, a past Browns Director of Pro Personnel under Bill Belichick, to be his GM.

The Boston Globe reported that Banner likes Lombardi because of ties to former Browns assistant and Alabama head coach Nick Saban, Oregon’s Chip Kelly or New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, the Canton-McKinley High and John Carroll product.

A source said that McDaniels, who coached the Broncos in 2009, would jump at the chance to coach the Browns.

    Why would ANYONE hire this guy after what he did to the Broncos. He is kept on a leash in New England and his success is all owed to Brady. It would be a HUGE mistake.
