Cleveland Browns will today complete their search for a head coach as they are expected to give Bills' defensive coach Mike Pettine is first top job in the NFL. 

Pettine has a great record in the NFL as a defensive coach, with a three year stint calling the plays for the New York Jets, which included back-to-back appearances in the AFC Championship Game. 

Last year he spent the season improving the Buffalo defense as they competed valiantly to try and get in the play-offs. 

Both Ian Rapoport of NFL Network and Adam Schefter of ESPN reported on Twitter Thursday that they expect Pettine to be announced imminently, once contract issues are sorted. 

Schefter said, "Browns expected to offer their HC job to Bills DC Mike Pettine, per multiple league sources, via @mortreport and me. Need to work out deal."

Rapport added, "The #Browns are attempting to hire #Bills DC Mike Pettine today, per Browns sources. They are trying to figure out coordinators."

Once Pettine is announced as the new Browns' HC, his first port of business will be to decide whether or not to release QB's Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell, and then figure out who is the man to take his team forward as the QB for the new era in Cleveland.
