Browns remain interested in 49ers assistants for coordinator jobs

Jan 19, 2020 at 8:45 AM--


The Cleveland Browns may have hired Kevin Stefanski over Robert Saleh, but that doesn't mean the team isn't still interested in San Francisco 49ers assistants. Remember those reports of Cleveland also being interested in 49ers passing game coordinator Mike LaFleur and run game coordinator Mike McDaniel? That hasn't changed, apparently.

The Browns never officially put in a request to speak with either assistant, even as they traveled to the Bay Area to interview Saleh, and 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan stated this week that no teams have put in a request to speak to any other assistants.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Browns remain interested in LaFleur and McDaniel, writing the following for NFL.com:

"The Browns have interest in either 49ers passing game coordinator Mike LaFleur or run game coordinator Mike McDaniel to come in as offensive coordinator. However, official requests may not go in because both are under contract and unlikely to be allowed out to go to Cleveland. The Browns are casting a wide net with no time constraints to hire. Cleveland also considered both coaches as possible head coach candidates but never requested them and only interviewed defensive coordinator and finalist Robert Saleh before hiring Kevin Stefanski."

Former 49ers quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello, who served as the Denver Broncos' offensive coordinator this past season, is also possibly being considered for Cleveland's offensive coordinator job or another position on Stefanski's staff, like quarterback coach.

The Browns remain interested in 49ers passing-game coordinator and defensive backs coach Joe Woods for their defensive coordinator job. Rapoport reports that Cleveland is also considering Steve Wilks, who served as its defensive coordinator this past season, and Wade Phillips, who most recently served as defensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams.

The 49ers are preparing to play in the NFC Championship later today against the Green Bay Packers.

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh is likely on a path to a head coaching job in the NFL. That could happen sooner rather than later. That could have happened in January, but the Cleveland Browns opted to go with former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski over Saleh. That bought 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan at least another year with his defensive coordinator. Shanahan didn't hide his excitement after Saleh didn't get the job. "I was pumped," Shanahan told reporters in January. "... I was extremely excited. I definitely have some empathy for Saleh. I know anyone who goes through that process and stuff, we're all competitive,

The NFLPA medical director, Dr. Thom Mayer, has issued a statement advising that NFL players no longer organize practices together, like the ones that San Francisco 49ers players held this past week in the Nashville, Tennessee area. Those throwing sessions, organized by quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and had 15 other players participating, resulted in a positive test for the COVID-19 virus. The 49ers did not reveal the player who tested positive. All of the practice participants have submitted to tests for the virus and are awaiting the results. None can travel until those results are known. The nation is amid a pandemic, which prevents
