Browns interested in two Raiders assistant coaches

Share

The Cleveland Browns requested permission from the Raiders so that they can interview assistant coaches Al Saunders and John DeFilippo for their offensive coordinator vacancy.
The Browns have an opening at offensive coordinator because Kyle Shanahan asked out of his contract earlier this week. Saunders and DeFilippo are the latest candidates added to the Browns list, according to NFL Network.
Greg Roman, the 49ers offensive coordinator the past four seasons, is slated to meet with the Browns on Monday for their offensive coordinator opening.
DeFilippo has coached quarterbacks with the Raiders the past five seasons. He also was with the Raiders in the same capacity in 2007-08. Saunders has coached for more than 30 years in the NFL, including the past four with the Raiders.
Saunders’ experience extends to being an NFL head coach as far back as 1986. He also has been an offensive coordinator for several teams, including for the Raiders in 2011.
The Browns’ request seems to be a formality, given the contracts of Saunders and DeFilippo, as well as the other Raiders assistant coaches, expire Tuesday.

  • xXJustReFreshBabyXx

    Pep Hamilton over Del Rio!

  • I don’t like either of them never did…if you could read you would know I said 100 times that no other teams are interested in del Rio and that is “MY” issue with him stop putting words in my mouth troll!

  • william banks

    We are doomed if those two are our choices.DAMN!!!!!

  • the comedy genius dr robert

    Can’t deny the offense. Linehan is in play.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Luck v. Wilson?
    Yeah, would be good.
    Wilson would win I believe

  • xXJustReFreshBabyXx

    We give Pep what he wants.

  • I never said he was the GOAT, just a HOFplayer.
    And he is.

  • Morilla_00

    Welcome back to the bay Jack.

  • The Friendliest Alex7

    maybe I can read but not remember what one random poster said?

  • Oak R8rs

    He wouldn’t. But Jerry is funny. He’s a FA now.

  • EMRaiders

    only cause of his defense

  • RaidO

    No other team interviewed Del Rio. For a reason. Not that good.

  • william banks

    YES!!!!!!!!!!

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Winning that last game from the pocket was real good.

  • 504 Raider

    Rex bringing OC Greg Roman and DC Dennis Thurman to Buffalo.

  • Breaking_Black

    We don’t want another Denver DC, but we’re okay to another unproven HC in Pep……

    LOL.

  • xXJustReFreshBabyXx

    Pep Hamilton as Raiders Head Coach sounds the most attractive.

  • Boar Hunter aka TUCK YOU

    Quit trolling, 24 pts, couldnt stop a rb they just signed last week, no pass rush with Von and Ware on roster, yeah they got worked

  • The Big Banana

    Pep! Pep! Pep!

    Like a bunch of children in here.

  • Oak R8rs

    Why? Tell me more about Hamiltons HC experience and success plz. I’ll wait right here.

  • Thec

    Yep…Go with Pep©

  • WHY????

    Why are you all so enamored with this guy he is the most inexperienced of them all

  • The Friendliest Alex7

    fair point.

    I’ll ask, how many teams interviewed McCarthy coming off a 32nd ranked season as OC? Packer fans and media said the team was just being cheap with a no-name hire.

    did Gruden interview with other teams before here?

  • Leonel Varela

    I picked the colts vs the packers to play in the SB back in september… then kind of lose faith in the colts… they looked very good today, I think they could win vs NE, if the refs don’t help the pats so much if course…

  • Umrao32

    Peyton 11-13 in the Playoffs. 9-1 in 1st and done.
    Wow…………..

  • the comedy genius dr robert

    Bevell or pep. That’s it for me. Linehan is a retread same with del rio.

    New blood for me.

  • 504 Raider

    Shouldn’t be. Just because he called a good game today. Seems too passive out there personality wise. We need a fiery HC to lead men. No more DAs.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Possible.

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    new post, re: Del Rio

  • The Big Banana

    You too with that copyright horse shît. Please tell me it ain’t so.
