Browns interview Ken Whisenhunt for second time

The Cleveland Browns are interviewing ex-Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt for a second time.

He interviewed Whisenhunt last week in Arizona.

In Arizona, Whisenhunt was let go after six seasons that included the long-suffering franchise's only Super Bowl appearance.

Last season the Cards started the season 4-0 but lose 11 of its last 12 to finish 5-11.

The 50-year-old had more wins than any other coach in Cardinals history, going 45-51, 4-2 in the playoffs. He had a year worth about $5.5 million left on his contract.

Of the team's three winning seasons the past 28 years, two came with Whisenhunt as coach.

He spent 2001 to 2006 with the Pittsburgh Steelers as the teams tight ends coach and later as the offensive coordinator.

He was with the Browns in 1999 as the tight end coach in the teams first year back as an expansion team.

The Augusta, Georgia native was a 12th round pick in the 1985 draft with the Falcons. He also played for the Washington Redskins and the New York Jets.
