The Cleveland Browns now have competition for a new head coach. Sunday’s biggest NFL story took place in Green Bay as Mike McCarthy has been fired by the Green Bay Packers.

Will the Super Bowl winning coach be out of a job long? If Hue Jackson can get a new job in the league within a couple of weeks, why can’t McCarthy?

Reports say the Browns are already looking into the possibility of McCarthy coming to town as the next head coach. It’s not difficult to figure out why. McCarthy has previously worked with Browns general manager John Dorsey and assistant general manager Eliot Wolf during their time in Green Bay.

Dorsey has publicly said he would give interim head coach Gregg Williams an interview for the job. During the week Williams said he would be alright serving as a defensive coordinator next year as well. Williams isn’t saying just here in Cleveland. Right now it would be a good idea for Williams to keep his options open once the season ends.

McCarthy has plenty of coaching experience in the NFL. He spent the last 13 seasons as the head coach of the Packers. McCarthy was 125-77-2 and 10-8 in the playoffs. He also won his lone Super Bowl in 2010. McCarthy led the Packers to the Super Bowl XLV victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

If Dorsey feels McCarthy is the right man for the job, don’t be surprised if a move is made very soon. Remember, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam fired Sashi Brown and hired Dorsey with four games remaining last year in order to get a head start on rebuilding the roster. The plan is working so far. It’s just like a perfect play call. If it worked once, keep calling it until it doesn’t work any more.
