Browns hire Pettine, bypass Seahawks DC Dan Quinn

As of now, it looks like Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn may be staying put.

Quinn had been considered a serious candidate for the opening with the Cleveland Browns.

But the Browns today instead hired Mike Pettine.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reported today that Quinn was in the mix “until today” and that Browns CEO Joe Banner said bypassing Quinn was probably the “toughest decision” in the process.

That fills what was the last of the current openings (coach tracker here).
