The Cleveland Browns are hard at work trying to find replacements for former head coach Mike Pettine and general manager Ray Farmer, with the majority of the rumors right now swirling around the team's vacant HC position. Here's the latest rumblings from around the organization.

The Browns are starting at the top of their wishlist, interviewing Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson and Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase today, according to Cleveland.com. These are the first two interviews the Browns have conducted since firing former head coach Mike Pettine on Sunday.
Gase is considered to be a top candidate in the Eagles' coaching search. He's already interviewed with Philadelphia and is being brought back for a second interview. Neither coach has any previous ties to the Browns, but Jackson has been in Ohio with the Bengals from 2004-2006 and from 2012 to now.
Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia to interview with Browns
Though they have yet to schedule an interview, Cleveland has shown a lot of interest in and will interview Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia for their head coaching position. Patricia, who has been with the Patriots since 2004, would be the third Bill Belichick defensive coordinator hired by the Browns, joining Romeo Crennel (2005-2008) and Eric Mangini (2009-10).
