Cleveland Browns to Interview Jim Tressel for Vacant Head Coaching Job


The Cleveland Browns are set to interview former Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel for their head coaching vacancy, according to Cleveland Plain-Dealer Browns beat reporter Mary Kay Cabot:



Tressel was Ohio State's head coach for ten seasons, winning the 2002 national championship and six Big 10 titles in that span. Tressel left the Buckeyes under the cloud of NCAA sanctions following allegations that OSU players traded team memorabilia for tattoos and cash.

Shortly after Cabot's report surfaced, a Browns official denied the team was interested in Tressel:



Rob Chudzinski coached the Browns to a 4-12 record in his first (and only) season in charge. These were the leading candidates for the position as of this Monday.
