Jimmy Haslam III has owned the Cleveland Browns for less than 2 years, and so far he has been rejected by two top prospects to coach his Cleveland Browns. According to reports circulating around the NFL, Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has declined to become a head coach in the NFL.
Sources are quoting McDaniels as saying; “now isn’t his time to consider becoming a head coach in the NFL. McDaniels has pulled the same stunt on the Browns brass as former head coaching candidate Chip Kelly did in the new ownerships first attempt at hiring a head coach.
You have to wonder what changed McDaniels mind. Maybe it was the way the Browns treated former head coach Rob Chudzinski. Maybe McDaniels and Chudzinski had a phone conversation. One thing is for certain, the Browns have a way of not getting their first prospect.
McDaniels was being reported as the front-runner, much in the same way it was reported that Chip Kelly would become Haslam’s first head coaching hire. Think about this for a minute, why would anyone decent want to come to Cleveland and be put on the hot seat in their first season as a head coach of the Cleveland Browns?
What goes around has a habit of coming around. Maybe these guys don’t want to work for Jimmy Haslam III and Joe Banner. To make things worse lets not forget to throw Michael Lombardi into the mix.
What a mess we have in Cleveland.
