Mike Pettin is expected to leave Cleveland’s defensive coordinator job in the coming weeks, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
The Browns have yet to announce Pettin’s next head coaching job, and he’ll remain on the sideline until he has a decision made.
Pettin, 53, has been an assistant for the Browns since 2013, but his role has fluctuated over the years.
The Browns parted ways with defensive coordinator Kirby Smart in February 2017 after a season-long run in which the defense ranked dead last in the league.
Smart, who was fired after the 2016 season, led the Browns to the playoffs in his second season as head coach.
