Browns will interview Todd Bowles for head coaching job

(WOIO) -

The Cleveland Browns will interview Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles on Friday. Cleveland's interest in talking to Bowles was reported earlier this week, but there was a report that he might choose to pass up the opportunity. By interviewing Bowles, the Browns will satisfy the requirements of the Rooney Rule.

Bowles oversaw a very good Cardinals defense in 2013 that finished the year sixth in the NFL in yards allowed and seventh in points allowed. Bowles finished the 2012 season as the defensive coordinator in Philadelphia after Juan Castillo was fired and spent the final three games of the 2011 season as the Dolphins' interim coach after Tony Sparano was fired. Bowles is also reportedly a candidate to replace Leslie Frazier in Minnesota.

Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is scheduled to interview with the Browns on Saturday.
