After the Detroit Lions defense had a breakout season in 2014-15, defensive coordinator Teryl Austin was an option for many teams as the new head coach. Ultimately, Austin stayed in Detroit for the 2015-16 season.
Now, it looks like Austin will once again be on the interview list for many teams in the NFL. According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, Austin is a likely interview candidate for the Cleveland Browns.
Names expected to interview for #Browns in the coming days: Teryl Austin & Adam Gase. Doug Marrone likely, as well.

Last year, Austin interviewed with the Atlanta Falcons and the Chicago Bears.
This season, the Lions rank 17th in the NFL in total defense, 14th in passing defense and 19th in rushing defense.
