In Cleveland Browns rumors, new names have emerged in the team’s head coaching search, plus updates on the names we’ve been hearing about.

Cleveland Browns rumors involving the head coaching search haven’t been all that tantalizing in recent weeks.

The media keeps focusing on Gregg Williams and Freddie Kitchens, for good reason as the Browns keep winning.

However, the front office has done a good job of keeping things close to the vest as the NFL’s “Black Monday” approaches.

As many as six vacancies could be open when the smoke from the firing storm concludes and the Green Bay Packers job, along with the Browns gig, look to be like the most coveted openings.

The search could take up to a couple weeks and even longer, should the Browns set their sights on a candidate whose team goes deep into the playoffs.

With that said, the Browns could interview candidates who have a Bye in the wild-card round of the playoffs, or there’s two weeks between the conference championship and the Super Bowl that candidates could be interviewed.

So on the eve of the NFL’s “Black Monday,” Browns fans finally got a late Christmas present, with some new names to ponder about as the franchise’s next head coach.

Here’s three new names to consider, as well as updates on the coaches whose names have already been tossed around.
