Add Dirk Koetter to the list of candidates for the Browns’ head-coaching job.

Koetter will interview with the Browns, Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports.

This is the first time Koetter has been tied to the Cleveland job, which became vacant when the Browns fired Rob Chudzinski at the end of the season. The Browns are also planning a second interview with Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, and they remain interested in Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

Koetter has been the offensive coordinator of the Falcons for the last two years, and was offensive coordinator in Jaksonville for five years before that. He has never been an NFL head coach, but he has had two different stints as a college head coach, going 40-34 in six seasons at Arizona State and 26-10 in three seasons at Boise State.
