Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles has told the Cleveland Browns to remove his name from consideration for their vacant head coaching position, according to Mike Garafalo of Fox Sports.
Bowles had interviewed with the team about replacing fired coach Rob Chudzinski this off-season, but the team has yet to make a decision despite interviewing multiple candidates. It is believed the Browns are waiting to interview Broncos' offensive coordinator Adam Gase before making a hire.
The former Washington Redskins safety has also interviewed to be head coach of the Minnesota Vikings, and he has not removed his name from contention for that position, according to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
