Don't you just love this time of year? It's the time for year when the good NFL teams are still playing and in contention for the Super Bowl, and most of the bad teams are looking for new coaches. The Cleveland Browns are no stranger to looking for a new coach, they've done it several times in the past and they're doing it right now as you read this article.

The good news is: there is never a shortage of NFL coaching rumors and 2014 is no exception. And if you are a fan of the Cleveland Browns, you can take at least some satisfaction in knowing your team already has a coach in mind.

Forget all of the talk about hiring Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops or any other big names that you have heard. The Browns desperately want former Denver Broncos head coach and current New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and they are going after his services with everything they have.

At the time of publication, the Browns have been known to interview McDaniels, Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. But McDaniels is the man they really seem to want.

"I know that's something that comes up each time this year for other coaches -- the opportunities are certainly flattering if they come up," McDaniels said Monday during his weekly conference call leading into the Patriots' AFC divisional round playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts. "That being said, I'm going to try to keep my focus on the Colts and our preparation this week.

"Like I've said in the past, I'm fortunate to have the job I have. I love being here. I love doing what I'm doing. Each opportunity that comes along is a little different. I'm going to leave it at that."

At the end of the day, we can't help but wonder if there's any coach that can play savior to such a poorly ran organization like the Cleveland Browns. Josh McDaniels is a good coach with a lot of potential, but he better think twice before accepting a job with the Browns. He is a big enough name and he has proven enough as an NFL coach to have plenty of options. There is no need for him to accept the first job that gets offered to him.

The Browns are the type of organization that has no idea what it takes to develop a consistently good NFL franchise. Many coaches and GMs have tried to change the culture in Cleveland, but they have all failed.

McDaniels should be very weary before taking the Browns gig.
