                    Cleveland is not a good coaching job. Let's face it Josh McDaniels was the hot ticket and he isn't there which should tell you everything you need to know. It would appear Josh is waiting till next year and meanwhile will take his major payday with the Pats one more year as Bill B's assistant. Not a bad life at all!

                      Sooooo, a Kubiak was brought in to help him succeed in Minnesota, and he gets a head coaching position, but he needed help to do good job at OC?

                        Bienemy not getting a HC job is obvious especially with teams wanting an offensive mind coach and he has the credentials which is sad

                            Eric Bieniemy, if they win the super bowl he will have his choice of whatever head coaching job comes open next season I would not take the Browns job, ever ever ever ever ever ever..... You take the Browns when you feel like its the only chance you are ever gonna get.

                                McDaniels should have been the guy, browns ownership didn't want him to make big changes

                                    Let’s hope Tom Brady lands in Cleveland this off-season to give the Browns’ Kevin Stefanski a fighting chance to prove himself as a head coach!

                                        I really thought they'd go with Josh McDaniels, & Wade Phillips. Keven O'Connell got snatched up pretty quick by McVay.

                                                  If bienemy wanted to be a head coach he shouldn't of choked out a woman in Colorado. Media is clueless on the guy.

                                                    Well, Stefanski is at least better looking than Mike McCarthey. I guess the Browns wanted to go with someone that wasn't fat like Kitchens. LOL!

                                                        The Browns could hire John Madden Prime and still finish below .500

                                                          Skip forward a year when stefanski is fired and we lose all the talent. Let's start stacking draft picks again. Send the Haslam's back to TN. Sell the team Haslam. No one wants you here.

                                                              These guys in this video make a good point. The Browns HC job needed someone with previous NFL HC experience. That's true, but only on one level. Here's the problem. Most HC candidates with HC experience do NOT want to touch the Cleveland Browns job. The Browns are the most dysfunctional team in the NFL. They don't even have a GM yet!! And I thought Eric Bieniemy would have been my choice for the browns HC job. I don't think hiring Stefanski was a bad choice; as a Vikings fan I'm sorry to see Stefanski go, but best of luck to him in Cleveland.

Cos they from the top up suck and u cant be successful in the NFL with jacked up front office. Can any name the team with a jack up front office is a winner. Waiting still waiting. In the NHL it don't work. NBA yes all day front office doesy matter if they suck. Cos 1 or 2 Superstars can void front sucking but not in the NFL

If I was Browns I would Trade Baker to Miami for a #1 and I would trade OBJ to the Raiders for a #1 pick. I would trade up for Tua or get Justin Herbert and build the O and D line
