One of the highlights of Mike Pettine’s press conference came when he was asked if he was surprised to get a call from the Browns. His response is as follows. “I was not surprised but those expectations were there at some point it was a goal of mine for sure a career goal. I know some guys that only want to progress to be a position coach or coordinate. I got the taste of being a head coach when I was a head coach in high school but again it was nothing that I actively pursued. When I’ve talked to young coaches and when I see guys heading down the wrong path I’ve always talked in terms of, ‘don’t look for a better job, do a better job’ and I always felt that if I put my head down and worked hard that the better opportunities find you on their own.”
