Seems like things in Cleveland are a mess right now in the Cleveland Browns head coaching search. Head coaching candidates are pulling their names off of the list and the team is still waiting on Denver Broncos OC Adam Gase to become free to talk. Gase is not going to interview until the Broncos are eliminated from the playoffs. While the Browns are waiting for Gase to have some free time, they are going to interview Dallas Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia for the position, per Jay Glazer.
Bisaccia has been one of the top special teams coaches in the league for some time. He won a championship with Jon Gruden in Tampa Bay and Gruden believes that he would be a good coaching candidate. Here are some thoughts from Gruden a couple of years ago:
“I coached a long time, he’s one of the best coaches I’ve worked with and I’m not just trying to be his agent or publicity manager,” Gruden said. “He’s a tremendous football coach, great with players, smart, works his butt off. I’d hire him as a head coach. If I was in position to interview people and look for quality candidates and he’s certainly one of the best I’ve been around.”
“Special teams guys — he’s not an offensive coach or a defensive coach, he’s kind of a wefence guy. He was my running backs coach, special teams coordinator, jack of all trades. He’s very good at personnel; he’s got a vast amount of experience. I hope he does get an opportunity to present himself. Sometimes that’s all people need is a chance to get in front of the people that are making these decisions.”
The head coaching search still is going. Add Rich Bisaccia to the possible candidates for the job.
