The Cleveland Browns  head-coaching search is down to two finalists and the team is expected to meet with each candidate Thursday before making its choice, reports ESPN.com's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen.

According to the report, Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine is the favorite to get the job but the team has not made a decision yet. 

The Browns also interviewed Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter on Wednesday. Football Scoop reported that the team also went down to Florida to interview former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano, but he is unlikely to be hired.

The Browns are the last NFL team to have a head coaching vacancy and are looking to replace Rob Chudzinski, who was fired after one season and a 4-12 record.
