Browns Interview Greg Schiano For Head CoachJanuary 22nd, 2014
It seems one of the great messes of the NFL, the Cleveland Browns, might want Greg Schiano to remove them from laughingstock status.
Per Joe’s pal Alex Marvez of FOX Sports and SiriusXM NFL Radio, the former leader of the New Schiano order interviewed for the Browns’ vacant head coaching gig today.
Joe’s confident Schiano will interview very well. He’ll be impressive and detailed. He’ll sell how he was railroaded by leaky, sleepy Josh Freeman. He’ll explain how he fulfilled Team Glazer’s cleanup mandate and had things going in the right direction. He’ll explain that he kept a locker room together during the toughest of times. He’ll look, sound and feel like a leader.
Now exactly how Schiano will explain why his team was pulverized over and over and over again in the second halves of game is another story. That was bad coaching, not bad luck.
Frankly, Joe hopes Schiano gets the Browns job, and Joe thinks Schiano has a darn good shot at it.
The best thing about it would be Schiano surely would move quickly to trade for Mike Glennon. Schiano couldn’t rave about the kid more than he did, and that extended to Schiano’s farewell news conference that he hosted at a local Tampa hotel. Heck, Schiano might even authorize a trade down in the first round with the Bucs just to get his hands on his golden child.
Good luck, Coach.
