Mike Pettine

named Browns

new head coach


After nearly a month of

twists, turns and talk, the

Browns found their man.

Mike Pettine is Cleveland’s

new coach.

Buffalo’s defensive coordinator,

who met with team

officials for the first time

just a week ago, finalized a

five-year contract Thursday

to become the Browns’ seventh

full-time coach since

1999. The team fired Rob

Chudzinski on Dec. 29 following

one season and

embarked on a winding

search that ended with Pettine.

“We wanted to be thorough

from the start,” CEO

Joe Banner said, “and we

interviewed as many people

as we could. From that

group, we hired the best

individual for this job. Our

players and fans are going

to really enjoy Mike Pettine

and his leadership style.”

The 47-year-old Pettine,

the son of a legendary Pennsylvania

high school coach,

spent one year with the Bills

after four as Rex Ryan’s

defensive coordinator with

the New York Jets.

With his clean-shaven

head and no-nonsense

approach, Pettine, who also

was an assistant coach with

Baltimore, is popular with

players. He’ll inherit a

Cleveland team that went 4-

12 this season after losing

its last seven games.

“To compete in the AFC

North, you have to be willing

to bloody your nose a little

bit,” Pettine said. “That’s

the mentality we’re going to

take here. This is team is

going to be built on toughness.”
