Report: Raiders QB coach John DeFilippo candidate for Browns offensive coordinator position

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Browns are in the process of filling out a new coaching staff and they are exploring all possible option to fill them. The top two current candidates to fill the offensive coordinator position in Cleveland are former Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan and current Raiders quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo according to Albert Breer.

This isn't the first reported interest in DeFilippo's services this off-season. His name was tossed about following the season for a head coaching position at his alma mater James Madison University where he played quarterback.

DeFilippo, or "coach Flip" as he's commonly referred, has been the Raiders' QB coach for the past two seasons under Dennis Allen. This is his second stint with the team as he has previously coached the quarterbacks in 2007-08 under then head coach Lane Kiffin and interim head coach Tom Cable.

In between he spent a season with the Jets as assistant QB coach and two seasons as the offensive coordinator at San Jose State.
