The Buffalo Bills do not want to lose defensive coordinator Mike Pettine to the Browns. If what ESPN’s Adam Schefter said during a Wednesday afternoon radio show proves true, the Bills may end up happy.
Speaking about the Browns coaching search on the Michael Kay Show on ESPN radio, Schefter called Pettine a “fall back” option for the Browns, according to a blog post on the Bills’ web site.
“I’ll say this on the Cleveland Browns. Expect the unexpected,” Schefter said, according to buffalobills.com. “The Mike Pettine situation is going on, they’ve interviewed him twice. If they wanted to hire him they could just go ahead and do that and maybe they still will.
“But me reading between the lines, they’re hopping around, they’re interviewing other candidates, they’re bouncing around the country. I think if Pettine were their guy it would just be over and done with. And the longer it goes on the less likely in my mind that Pettine becomes the guy.
“I think he’s in play clearly. I think I would categorize him now as a fall back option. I think they’re looking at other things. They’re interviewing other candidates. They spoke to Dirk Koetter this morning. They’re continuing to reach out to people.
“But the one thing I will say is expect the unexpected. If you think it’s going to be Mike Pettine. If you think it’s going to be Dirk Koetter, get ready for that curve ball.”
