Closing in

January 11, 2011 - Mike McLain
According to numerous reports, it appears the Cleveland Browns could have their next head coach soon.

Among those interviewed are St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey and New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell. Shurmur is rumored to be the frontrunner.

There were indications early in the process that the Browns might interview Marty Mornhinweg, offensive coordinator of the Philadelphia Eagles, but no appointment has been made.

Fewell also interviewed with the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers. The Panthers are expected to name San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera as their coach.

Team president Mike Holmgren appears to want an offensive-minded coach that has experience running the west-coast offense. That would seem to eliminate Fewell and elevate Shurmur.

Mularkey might be behind Shurmur on Holmgren's list because of his two-season tenure as coach of the Buffalo Bills (2004-05). The Bills went 9-7 in his first season but slipped to 5-11 the next year.

Mularkey resigned because of differences with the front office.
