CLEVELAND -- The presumed favourite in the Browns coaching search says hes in the running. Chad Ruhwedel Jersey . New England offensive co-ordinator Josh McDaniels confirmed he interviewed over the weekend with Cleveland owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner. The team is searching for its second coach in a year and seventh since 1999 after firing Rob Chudzinski last week. "We met and thats about all there is at this point," McDaniels said Monday during a conference call. "Nothing further." The Browns began the second week of their search with no conclusion in sight. McDaniels wasnt offered the job because NFL rules prohibit teams from making offers to assistant coaches on playoff teams until they are out of the post-season. Even if the Browns want to hire McDaniels, they cant discuss a contract with him until New Englands season ends. The Patriots play Indianapolis on Saturday in a divisional playoff. McDaniels, who went 11-17 as Denvers coach before he was fired, did not divulge details of his meeting. "The opportunities are certainly flattering if they come up," said McDaniels, a native of Canton, Ohio. "That being said, I am going to try to keep my focus on the Colts and our preparation this week. Like Ive said in the past, Im fortunate to have the job I have, and I love being here. I love doing what Im doing. Each opportunity that comes along is a little different and Im going to leave it at that and continue to put my effort and attention into the Colts this week." McDaniels is one of three candidates known to have interviewed with Haslam and Banner. The Browns top brass also interviewed Seattle defensive co-ordinator Dan Quinn and Arizona defensive co-ordinator Todd Bowles. The team also requested permission to interview Denver offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase, but he declined the chance to meet with the Browns or Minnesota Vikings because he didnt want to be a distraction during the Broncos playoff preparations. Denver hosts San Diego on Sunday. McDaniels immediately emerged as the front-runner to wind up in Cleveland, based mostly on his association with Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who has worked with Browns general manager Michael Lombardi. Banner, too, has always thought highly of McDaniels, who may be better suited for a second go-around as a head coach after some tough lessons learned in Denver. The 37-year-old McDaniels clashed with quarterback Jay Cutler and wide receiver Bandon Marshall and made several questionable personnel moves as the teams de facto GM. Its still possible the Browns will hire a college coach. Bob Stoops, though, isnt the one. A person with direct knowledge of Clevelands search told The Associated Press that the Browns will not interview Oklahomas coach, who has deep Ohio roots. After his Sooners stunned Alabama in the Sugar Bowl last week, Stoops did nothing to dispel a report that said he had the "inside track" for the Browns job. But the person who spoke to the AP on Monday said the team is not pursuing him and that any reports saying so are "false." The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the search. Stoops said "you never know" when asked about the possibility of one day coaching in the NFL. His vague remarks fueled speculation about Clevelands coaching vacancy. Stoops is from Youngstown and has been linked to the Browns in the past. Cleveland is also reportedly interested in speaking with Auburns Gus Malzahn and Vanderbilts James Franklin. Malzahn will be available for an interview after Monday nights BCS national title game against Florida State. He doesnt have any NFL experience and he has made it clear hes happy at the school, but that may not prevent Haslam and Banner from making a strong run at him. The Browns were enamoured with Chip Kelly during their coaching search last year, but after a short courtship, the former Oregon coach decided to sign with Philadelphia. Franklin has one year of pro experience as Green Bays wide receivers coach in 2005. He led the Commodores to a 9-4 season and a win over Houston in Sundays BBVA Compass Bowl. Franklins impressive turnaround at Vanderbilt has caught the attention of Haslam, a Tennessee alum. Vanderbilt went 24-15 in three seasons under Franklin, who left the interview room following the win without replying when asked if he would be back at the school. Paul Martin Jersey . He, the 25-year-old Toronto backup net-minder and Manitoba native, would be making just his fourth start in the past 16 games against the Jets the following evening. It was the word of opportunity for Reimer, who has fallen into the role of backup, outmatched in recent weeks by Jonathan Bernier, his Quebec counterpart. Greg McKegg Jersey . Icardi is living with the ex-wife of former teammate Maxi Lopez, and the Sampdoria forward refused to shake Icardis hand before kickoff. Walter Samuel and Rodrigo Palacio also scored for Inter while Lopez had a penalty saved. http://www.penguinsauthenticofficial.com/brian-dumoulin-jersey/ . The turf is scheduled to give way to actual grass that is bright green, so we dont have to complain any more—we just have to wait a few years. Instead, do feel free to complain if the roof is closed for any reason other than to allow a game to be played.INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana Pacers made it official Wednesday: Andrew Bynums season is over. About seven hours before facing Washington in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference second round series, team officials said the oft-injured Bynum would miss the rest of the playoffs and would not even be with the team for the rest of the post-season. Indiana lost Game 1 on Monday in the bestt-of-seven series. Ian Cole Jersey. Bynum had been battling a sore right knee even before he signed with the team Feb. 1 from Cleveland. The Pacers hoped he could add depth behind All-Star centre Roy Hibbert. Bynum looked good in his Pacers debut, but he played only one more game, finishing the season with averages of 11.5 points and 9.5 rebounds in 26 games overall.
