Cleveland Browns might have found their man in Mike Pettine

The Browns will interview Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine for their head coaching vacancy a second time tonight in Mobile, Ala., a league source confirmed for Mary Kay Cabot.

If things go really well, the Browns might decide to look no further.

The Buffalo Bills fans would probably cry themselves to sleep tonight and every night in the near future, because Pettine had the Bills defense biting.  This season was Pettine’s first as Bills defensive coordinator. His defense ranked 10th in total defense, and second in sacks (57) and interceptions.

During his four seasons as the Ravens’ outside linebackers coach, Baltimore’s defense finished fifth (2005), first (2006), sixth (2007) and second (2008) in the NFL. In 2006, the defense allowed only 201 points and 264 yards per game.

If the Browns do hire Mike Pettine, who seems to be the only man that wants the job, it could be the best hire that no one expected.  Pettine is going to get that defense biting, but will need to find a solid man to run the offense.
