Just hours after taking the head coaching job with the Browns Mike Pettine has already asked the Bill for permission to interview LBs coach Jim O’Neil.
That according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter who tweeted the following.
AdamSchefter: Browns submitted request to Buffalo to interview Bills LB coach Jim O’Neil for Cleveland’s DC. O’Neil and Pettine worked together with Jets.
The request is far from surprising. O’Neil also coached with Pettine prior to his stop in Buffalo when both were with the New York Jets.
O’Neil also played for Pettine’s father in high school at Central Bucks West.
