So, it appears the Cleveland Browns finally convinced someone to take their head coaching job the last available NFL head coaching job.
That someone would be now former Buffalo Defensive Coordinator Mike Pettine
So says well connected Cleveland.com reporter Mary Kay Cabot:

Pettine, who's been an NFL coordinator for a couple of teams in his 5-year career would be the 3rd Browns head coach in the past 3-years. The team dumped Rob Chudzinski after one season that they claimed would be a "rebuilding" year.
Since then, the team and owner Jimmy Haslam, tried hard to convince New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and several others to take the job. None have been interested.
The Browns have struggled to find success over the past several years. It will be interesting to see how Pettine, a coach lacking head coaching experience fares....
