Browns to interview Jauron

The Browns have filed the necessary paperwork and so the Eagles have granted them permission to interview defensive backs coach Dick Jauron for Cleveland's defensive coordinator opening, a league source said.

Browns president Mike Holmgren formally introduced new head coach Pat Shurmur today. Jauron, who was hired by the Eagles almost exactly a year ago, worked under Holmgren in Green Bay from 1992-94. He previously was the head coach at Buffalo (2006-09) and Chicago (1999-2003).

Jauron was also a senior assistant with the Eagles. He was brought in last year to bring some veteran leadership to a young defensive coaching staff headed by the 36-year-old Sean McDermott.

McDermott's defense struggled last season, but he will be back, coach Andy Reid said Monday. If Jauron goes, though, the Eagles will need to fill a hole on defense. Michael Zordich, who was the Eagles' defensive quality control coach this past season, also worked extensively with the defensive backs. The former NFL safety would be a likely candidate.

The Eagles may look for someone with more experience, however.

Jauron, first, has to get the Browns job. All signs seem to indicate that he will.
