Browns meet with Eagles assistant Wilson for coordinator job

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns interviewed Philadelphia assistant coach Dennard Wilson to be their defensive coordinator, taking advantage of the Eagles having a bye from the first weekend of NFL playoffs to speak with him. Wilson is the third candidate to meet with the Browns. Former Detroit coach Jim Schwartz and Steelers assistant Brian Flores were in earlier this week. The Browns also plan to interview Seattle associate head coach Sean Desai. Cleveland is looking to replace Joe Woods, who was fired after three seasons. Wilson has been with the top-seeded Eagles for the past two seasons. He coached the club’s defensive backs in 2021 and became the passing game coordinator this season.
