Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports that the Browns have expressed interest in speaking with Bills assistant general manager Joe Schoen for their GM vacancy.
Fowler notes that Schoen would likely be paired with Bills OC Brian Daboll should Cleveland go this route.
The Browns have requested interviews with two general manager candidates including Eagles executive Andrew Berry and Colts assistant GM Ed Dodd and it’s possible Schoen could be added to the list in the coming days.
Reports have said for some time now that the Browns plan to hire their head coach before bringing in their GM. A decision from the Browns regarding their next head coach isn’t expected to come until Sunday at the earliest.
Schoen originally interned with the Panthers in their ticket office before serving as a scouting assistant in 2001. From there, he was promoted Southeast and Southwest scout before joining the Dolphins as a national scout.
Miami promoted Schoen to director of player personnel in 2014 and he spent four years in the role before the Bills hired him as their assistant GM in 2017.
We’ll have more regarding the Browns as the news is available.
