Adam Schefter reports that the Cleveland Browns have requested permission to interview Ravens’ OC Greg Roman for their head-coaching vacancy.
The Browns have also requested an interview with Patriots OC Josh McDaniels, so they’re clearly moving quickly to find their next head coach.
Roman, 47, began his NFL coaching career with the Panthers back in 1995 as their offensive line assistant. He had short stints with the Texans and Ravens before later being hired as the 49ers to run their offense in 2011.
Roman spent four years in San Francisco and was later brought in by the Bills as their offensive coordinator. Unfortunately, the Bills elected parted ways with Roman just a few weeks into the 2016 regular season and promoted Anthony Lynn as his replacement.
The Ravens hired Roman as their senior assistant tight ends coach in 2017 before promoting him to offensive coordinator at the beginning of 2019.
In 2019, the Ravens’ offense ranked No. 2 in total yards, No. 1 in points scored, No. 1 in rushing yards and No. 27 in passing yards.
