Cleveland Browns to interview Todd Monken for offensive coordinator job

Cleveland Browns to interview Todd Monken for offensive coordinator job

With much of the Redskins defensive coaching staff seemingly on their way out, Washington should explore the possibility of bringing Williams back.

The coaching move relieved former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams from his duties as interim head coach and actually ended his tenure with the Browns as a whole.

Arizona general manager Steve Keim said Wednesday the Cardinals were searching for a "veteran" defensive coordinator who would run a 3-4 defense, not a 4-3 that was deployed by former Cardinals coach Steve Wilks, who was sacked after a 3-13 season.

The hires mean that only the Jets, Dolphins and Bengals remain in the hunt for their next head coach.


Todd Monken, who is now in the running for the offensive coordinator position job for the Browns, has a few job offers that he might want to consider.

In that role, he helped ex-Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield put together a prolific rookie season. That came after he completed just 58.3 percent of his passes in the first half of the year.

Zigging while everyone else zags, the Broncos sought a general in Fangio who could run his defense, leaving the offense to Gary Kubiak and everything else up to John Elway as Denver looks to snap its three-season playoff-less streak. It also seems likely that Fangio will call the defensive plays in at least his first year, with whomever he names as defensive coordinator getting the title in name only.

His next task will be cleaning up a Broncos defense that finished 13th in 2018.
