AP source: Browns interview ex-Bears coach Trestman for OC

CLEVELAND (AP) - A person familiar with the process says the Cleveland Browns have interviewed former Bears coach Marc Trestman for their open offensive coordinator position.

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team is not commenting during its search to replace Kyle Shanahan, said Trestman interviewed with Cleveland on Wednesday.

Trestman was fired after the Bears finished 5-11 and missed the playoffs for the seventh time in eight seasons. Chicago also fired general manager Phil Emery.

The person says Browns tight ends coach Brian Angelichio is also a candidate for offensive coordinator, while team officials are also scheduled to interview Jets running back coach Anthony Lynn and Oakland Raiders quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo.

Improving on offense is a top priority for the Browns, which finished 7-9 under coach Mike Pettine and missed the playoffs after losing their last five games.
