Cleveland Browns to interview former Titans coach Mike Munchak

New, comments

After missing out on the Penn State job, Munchak continues to seek a head coaching job. If he can't reach one, it's been said he will look for offensive line coach positions in the NFL. The Steelers have one available.

With the number of available head coaching positions dwindling - three remain, one in Cleveland, Minnesota and Detroit - the Cleveland Browns are interviewing one of the remaining candidates with head coaching experience.

The Browns have interviewed former Titans head coach Mike Munchak, the same day as former Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt was reportedly hired as the Titans head coach.

Tennessee cut ties with Munchak after three years as the franchise's head coach, and over 30 years combined as a player and coach with the Titans (formerly Houston Oilers) franchise.

Munchak was also believed to be in the running for Penn State's head coaching job that was given to Vanderbilt's James Franklin last week. It has been said Munchak would entertain offensive line coaching positions, should he not generate a job offer as a head coach.

The Steelers fired offensive line coach Jack Bicknell Jr. after one season on the job. The position is still vacant, although the team has expressed interest in Panthers assistant offensive line coach Ray Brown and their own assistant OL coach Sean Sarrett.

There has also been talk of Munchak returning to Houston, where he spent 17 years as a player, as the offensive line coach under former Penn State coach Bill O'Brien.
