General manager John Dorsey hasn’t revealed much about the Cleveland Browns’ head coaching search, but he does have one person in mind.

Dorsey told reporters on Wednesday that Gregg Williams will be interviewed for the position, via’s Mary Kay Cabot.

Williams was named the interim head coach after Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley were relieved of their duties on Oct. 29. Freddie Kitchens was also promoted to offensive coordinator at that time.

After raving about the job Williams and Kitchens are doing, Dorsey said he’s looking for a head coach with character and a high football acumen, and someone who can lead a young Browns team, per Cabot.

“I just want the best possible head coach to move this thing forward regardless of age. It could be a woman, too,” Dorsey said, via Tony Grossi of

Dorsey declined to say if he’s been scouting any college coaches, according to the Chronicle-Telegram’s Scott Petrak. Lincoln Riley has been connected to the job, though the Oklahoma head coach said he “doesn’t have that itch” to make the jump to the NFL.

“When we had the first pick in the draft, I didn’t say much. I’m not going to say much (about the coaching search),” Dorsey said, via Cabot.

Since firing Jackson, Cleveland has gone 1-1. Currently on their bye, the Browns will look to improve their 3-6-1 record in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
