Marty Schottenheimer said during an interview on Sirius NFL Radio on Monday that it's unlikely he would become head coach of the Browns again, but he admitted he was intrigued about the possibility of returning to Cleveland in a front office role if Bill Cowher were head coach.
"That would be very interesting for a couple of reasons," Schottenheimer said on "The Sirius Blitz." "You know, Bill and I have remained very, very close friends throughout our NFL careers, and it goes back to when he was a player [for the Browns] and I was an assistant. I would be less than candid if I didn't say that that is, at the very least, intriguing. But there are so many movable parts there it would be like a Rubik's cube."
Cowher is the Browns' first choice to replace coach Romeo Crennel, who will be fired after the season, a league source said, but Schottenheimer, 65, would be considered if Cowher is unattainable.
Cowher did not respond Monday to a request through his agents to be interviewed.
Schottenheimer said a Bill Parcells-type front office role is possible, "but again, it's a long shot. I've picked my family up for a number of years and moved them all over the place and I'm sitting here now [at home in North Carolina], it's a little bit overcast here, but I'm looking out at the lake and life is good."
