It could all just be a smokescreen for Josh McDaniels, but over the last few hours, reports have come out that Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops will talk to the Browns, and now there’s a tweet out that former Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel will talk to the Browns in the next few days.
Former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel will interview for #Browns head coach job within next few days, per Joe Dunn of Akron's Fox Sports 1350

The only coaches that has spoken to the Browns thus far is Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles.
As for McDaniels, the teams brass will talk with him on Saturday, and it would still be a shock if he’s not the guy on the sidelines next fall.
As for Tressel, the 61-year-old former Ohio State coach who won a National Title in 2002 is with the University of Akron, and recently received another promotion as an administrator with the school.
His new title is executive vice president with added responsibilities in the transition of retiring university president Luis Proenza.
Tressel did spend some time helping the Colts when Jim Caldwell was head coach, as he helped with the replays for the club.
