The Cleveland Browns will interview Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter for their open head coaching position, reports Alex Marvez of Fox Sports.

After firing Rob Chudzinski earlier this offseason, the Browns are the last remaining NFL team without a head coach. Cleveland finished this past season with a 4-12 record and in last place in the AFC North.

Koetter recently completed his second season as Atlanta’s offensive coordinator. Due to a slew of injuries, the Falcons regressed offensively, scoring 22.1 points per game in 2013 after notching 26.2 points per game in 2012.

Prior to landing in Atlanta, Koetter spent five years as the offensive coordinator of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Last season, the Browns were among the worst offenses in the NFL, only averaging 19.3 points per game.

The Browns are also reportedly interested in Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine and Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, both of whom have already interviewed with Cleveland.

Another candidate?  It's only a matter of time before the Browns interview former Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski for the open head coaching position caused by the firing of former head coach Rob Chudzinski.
