STRONGSVILLE, OHIO – Big news coming out of Northeast Ohio this morning as former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was spotted house hunting in Strongsville this morning, Browns beat reporter Mary Kay Cabot reports.
This news comes after the Browns canned first year head coach Freddie Kitchens after an abysmal 6-10 freshman season, and seemingly losing the locker room in the process.
Coach Meyer has been a name that has been thrown around heavily in the Browns head coaching hunt since the beginning of December. Now it seems that things may be moving quickly in the Browns hiring process.
Newly appointed assistant GM and former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice confirmed recently in an interview that Meyer was the Cleveland Browns first choice to be head coach.
“Urban epitomizes everything about Northeast Ohio that is true to our values: hard work, determination and some past allegations swept under the rug.”
Meyer, who has also been in the news recently for looking at investing in northeast Ohio Papa John’s chains with Strongsville resident Peyton Manning, would be a great fit for the Browns head coaching position.
After leading a, “Fire Freddie!” chant at the last Browns home game against the Ravens, it looks like Meyer is surely set to take the leap to the NFL.
Other Strongsville residents Bill Cowher and Bruce Arians gave their support for Meyer in recent interviews.
When we reached out for a comment, second front runner for the job, former Vice President Dick Cheney, did not comment.
