Poll: Would you rather have Dick Jauron or Dave Wannstedt serve as the Browns' defensive coordinator

By Nate Ulrich Published: January 20, 2011

Dick Jauron interviewed with the Browns for their defensive coordinator vacancy on Tuesday and Wednesday. Dave Wannstedt will interview for the same job today.

Jauron, 60, served as a senior assistant and defensive backs coach for the Philadelphia Eagles this past season. He's also a candidate to become the Eagles' defensive coordinator, and his chances of landing that job seemingly increased when Jim Mora took himself out of the running, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported Wednesday night.

Jauron has served as a head coach for the Chicago Bears (1999-2003) and the Buffalo Bills (2006-09). He has been a defensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars (1995-98) and the Detroit Lions (2004-05). Midway through the 2005 season, he became the Lions' interim head coach.

Last month, Wannstedt resigned under pressure as head coach of the University of Pittsburgh football team. In addition to meeting with the Browns, Wannstedt has also reportedly interviewed with the Bills.

Wannstedt, 58, has been a head coach for the Bears (1993-98), the Miami Dolphins (2000-04) and Pitt (2005-2010). He was also a defensive coordinator for the University of Miami (1986-88) and the Dallas Cowboys (1989-92).
