Browns Hire Pettine; Koetter stays in Atlanta

The Cleveland Browns announced today that they have hired Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine as their new head coach, ending the possibility that Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter would take over that team. Koetter was said to have interviewed with the Browns this week for their vacant head coaching position. The hiring of Pettine fills all the vacancies for head coaching positions in the NFL, likely ending any potential turnover the Falcons could have on their coaching staff this year.
