Browns to interview Bengals' Zimmer

By Jamison Hensley

The Browns are bringing in Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer for an interview later Wednesday, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

Obviously, I think this is a good move since I proposed it Monday. Zimmer's no-nonsense style would be a good fit for a young Browns team.

Zimmer told Cincinnati reporters on Monday that he hadn't heard from any teams about a head-coaching job. Last year, Zimmer interviewed with the Buccaneers and Dolphins.

This is the second reported interview for the Browns since they rebooted their search. Browns officials talked to CFL coach Marc Trestman on Tuesday and requested permission to speak to Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians.
