Sunday will be the first opportunity for the Browns to interview Baltimore Ravens director of pro personnel George Kokinis for their vacant general manager position, a league source said.
That's because the Ravens are on a short week of preparation for their playoff game at Tennessee Saturday after defeating the Miami Dolphins Sunday. The same window will apply for defensive coordinator Rex Ryan, also drawing interest from at least two teams in their coaching search.
Should the Ravens lose to the Titans, both Kokinis and Ryan would be available after Saturday for interviews.
Kokinis' name emerged over the weekend in connection with fired Jets coach Eric Mangini as someone Mangini would be comfortable working with. Mangini and Kokinis have been friends since they began working together in Cleveland in 1994. It has been widely reported that Lerner is fascinated with Mangini, 37.
