CLEVELAND (AP) -- A Browns spokesman says the team has not yet decided on a coach, however, signs are pointing to Buffalo defensive coordinator Mike Pettine as the favorite.
The Browns have been searching for a coach since firing Rob Chudzinski on Dec. 29. They seem to be working toward an agreement with Pettine. The 47-year-old has already met twice with the Browns and could become the seventh full-time coach since 1999.
The team struck down a report Thursday saying Pettine has been hired, calling it "false" and saying the Browns have not made a decision.
Pettine is one of at least 10 known candidates to interview with the Browns. The club has had one interview with Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, who is preparing for the Super Bowl.
