​Mike McCarthy shouldn't expect to be unemployed for a whole lot longer. The erstwhile head coach of the Green Bay Packers has been floated for a number of vacancies around the league, and insider Rob Demovsky now reports that he is on track to sit down for an interview with ​the Cleveland Browns for their top job on Thursday.

The Browns have a massive decision ahead of them, with interim head coach and incumbent defensive coordinator Gregg Williams among those in the hunt for the head gig. Nobody in the running can say for themselves what McCarthy can, however-- that they presided over a Super Bowl title as a head coach.


The Browns missed the playoffs once again this year, but closed out the campaign 5-3 for an overall record of 7-8-1. That spark will surely have earned Williams a long, hard look. But McCarthy has more division titles under his belt than most, and plenty around the league have taken notice.

Expect more news later in the week, Browns fans.


Of course, maybe ​Baker Mayfield should just coach the team himself. That actually might work.
