Browns defensive coordinator search widens as Eagles Dennard Wilson interviews

The Cleveland Browns will interview their third defensive coordinator candidate as they are set to meet with Dennard Wilson. Wilson is currently the pass game (defensive) coordinator for the NFC East champion Philadelphia Eagles. Mary Kay Cabot is reporting that the Browns and Wilson will meet Saturday the 14th to discuss the open defensive coordinator position.

Wilson’s background is with defensive backs and is a well-respected coach who started coaching in the NFL over 10 years ago. Schematically speaking Wilson comes from Todd Bowles’s and Gregg Williams’ aggressive style of defense coaching tree. It would be a total 180-degree change schematically from the one Joe Woods ran the past three seasons with the Browns.
