The Cleveland Browns requested and were granted permission from the 49ers to interview Greg Roman for their offensive coordinator vacancy, a source told CSNBayArea.com. The interview is scheduled for Monday.
Roman, who interviewed for the Buffalo Bills’ head-coaching job on Friday, has an interview Saturday with the Jacksonville Jaguars for their offensive coordinator job. The 49ers also granted the St. Louis Rams permission to interview Roman for the same position.
Browns coach Mike Pettine is looking for a new offensive coordinator after Kyle Shanahan was released from his contract after one season in that role. Shanahan requested to be let out of his contract due to reported friction between the coaches and front office.
Roman, who will not return to the 49ers next season, remains under contract to the organization. He spent four seasons as Jim Harbaugh’s offensive coordinator.
