At the outset of the Browns' head-coaching search, president Mike Holmgren indicated QB Colt McCoy's future development is a factor to be considered in the club's process to find a replacement for Eric Mangini. Holmgren said he "certainly" saw McCoy having the ability to be a long-term option at the position. "Who the head coach is, who the offensive coordinator is, who his position coach is — they're important for any team," Holmgren said. "But if all of a sudden you have the quarterback you think can be the quarterback, a young man who can be the quarterback for the next 10-15 years hopefully, it becomes even more important." The Browns interviewed Rams offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur on Jan. 7 and were expected to interview Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey on Jan. 8. Both candidates have worked closely with high-profile young quarterbacks in recent years, with Shurmur tutoring Sam Bradford and Mularkey aiding Matt Ryan. The Browns are also reportedly slated to interview Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell next week.
