CLEVELAND (AP) - A person familiar with the interview says the Cleveland Browns will meet with Marc Trestman, coach of the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.
The Browns have scheduled their meeting in Chicago with Trestman, said the person who spoke to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity on Monday because of the sensitivity of the search. Trestman's resume includes extensive time as an NFL offensive assistant. He has been with Montreal since 2008, leading the Alouettes to two CFL titles in his five seasons.
ESPN Cleveland first reported Trestman's interview with the Browns.
The Browns came close to a deal with Chip Kelly, but decided to continue their search because of the coach's hesitancy about jumping to the NFL. Kelly has decided to return to Oregon, two people with knowledge of the decision told the AP.
