"Sources tell WTAM 1100 that Bills defensive coordiantor Mike Pettine will be hired as the Browns next head coach, pending negotiations today.

Doesn't sound like it's a done deal necessarily.  Last year sources said Chip Kelly was going to be the new Clown coach.  I'm waiting for official work, like on nfl.com or buffalobills.com before I slash my wrists.

Jason McIntyre@jasonrmcintyre  55s
did the Browns ask Mike Pettine what he thinks about Johnny Manziel? Team supposedly willing to "trade up" for Johnny http://shar.es/Ula0L

As far as the negotiations go, word on the street is that Pettine really wants the gig.

OK ,AT THIS POINT  lets assume hes gone . next question is who is the new  DC ? AND IS pettine TAKING COACHES WITH HIM? ..

I THINK THE NFL SHOULD MANDATE that all coaches hired at corodinator position be required to fulfill at least 2 years of a contract before they can move on. it creates instability  to a team  in a rebuilding mode. if he didnt want to be there at least 2 years ,why go there? , just a opinion,

I'm not sure I'm putting that much faith in local radio - anywhere.  Not after the Mario Williams circus.

HA! In before closed.

Man, this sucks, however, I am hoping we get lucky and the Cleveland media have screwed up. I too remember the Chip Kelly thing. I wonder if the Browns use that as a tactic, to try and force the coach into signing, since, he's already "signed"? Meaning, if something goes wrong, then the coach must have done something "wrong".

Because it's a promotion rather than a lateral move.  Teams can block lateral moves for any of their coaches, but not promotions.  Pettine will only take coaches with him who he is able and willing to promote.

As for why he took a job he "didn't intend to keep for atleast two years"...

You don't know what his intentions were when he came aboard.  He obviously wanted the job when he took it, but what he considered to be an opportunity too good to pass up came along.

You don't want to deny a man what could be a once in a lifetime opportunity to follow his career arch goals.

Simply be thankful for his time here, wish him the best, and move on.

even if the report is accurate, negotiations could be a bit more.... difficult... on this one. if im pettine i want a whole lot of assurances built into my contract.
