The Cleveland Browns have not yet requested an interview with New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels according to

It is interesting because the Patriots are on a bye this weekend. Cleveland will meet with defensive coordinator Brian Flores this weekend according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora. La Canfora also reported that Cleveland does desire an interview with McDaniels, who is a native of Barberton.

McDaniels has an interview forthcoming with the Green Bay Packers. The Cincinnati Bengals have also requested an interview.

One potential hold up is the relationship between General Manager John Dorsey and Indianapolis Colts General Manager Chris Ballard. Ballard worked under Dorsey with the Kansas City Chiefs. Ballard also hired McDaniels last off-season to be the new head coach in Indianapolis. After accepting the position, McDaniels changed his mind and decided to return to the Patriots. Ballard was forced to re-open the search after all of the other vacancies had been filled.

McDaniels has long flirted with head coaching positions around the league since coming back to the Patriots as their offensive coordinator in 2012 following a failed attempt as the Broncos head coach and a brief stint as a coordinator for the Rams. The 42-year old attended Canton McKinley High School and later John Carroll. The Barberton native has spent 15 of his 18 seasons coaching with the Patriots. In addition to his brief detour with the Broncos, he served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach of the St. Louis Rams in 2011.
