Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine is in the hunt for the vacant Cleveland Browns head coaching post. Reports indicate he’ll get a second interview with the AFC North club. But where do Browns fans stand when it comes to their preferences of the candidates that have been mentioned for the job?
Cleveland.com conducted a poll online asking Browns fans which coaching candidate they preferred for their next head coach. Here were the results as of 9:40 am Tuesday.
Which candidate is your favorite for the Browns?
Dan Quinn 48.23% (2,596 votes)
Other: 20.92% (1,126 votes)
Adam Gase 16.56% (891 votes)
Mike Pettine 14.29% (769 votes)
Total Votes: 5,382
The Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator is the clear front runner by more than a 2:1 margin over the next highest vote getter among fans. It’d be hard to blame them in light of what he’s done with his NFC champion defense. Beyond that however, it’s clear that Browns fans have other preferences as ‘Other’ came in second with almost 21 percent of the vote.
The only drawback for the Browns with Quinn is they’ll now have to wait to hire him until after the Super Bowl if he’s their top candidate.
