Jauron reportedly in Cleveland

As expected, Eagles senior assistant and defensive backs coach Dick Jauron is in Cleveland to interview for the Browns' defensive coordinator job.

Jauron, 60, is scheduled to be there today and tomrorow, according to Tony Grossi, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The Browns also are planning to interview former Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt, 58, who spent 11 years in the NFL as a head coach with Bears and Dolphins. He also served as the defensive coordinator under Jimmy Johnson with the Cowboys and Johnson.

Jauron, of course, was a head coach with the Bears and Bills, and a defensive coordinator with the Jaguars and Lions.

The Browns seems interested in bringing in an experienced hand on defense to help first-year head coach Pat Shurmur.

Jauron remains a candidate for the Eagles' opening as well, along with Jim Mora Jr. and Billy Davis, among those who have been identified. Of course, there also could be other unknown candidates for the job.

Mora was in Denver last night to meet with new Broncos coach John Fox about their defensive coordinator opening. The Denver Post reported that a deal could be near, although there has been no new information yet today.
