Among the candidates being interviewed for the Cleveland Browns head coaching job is longtime Dallas Cowboys secondary coach Jerome Henderson, with his interview with the team set for Friday in Dallas, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Cleveland was Henderson’s last NFL stop before Dallas. He coached the team’s defensive backs from 2009 to 2011 before following Rob Ryan to Dallas. He stayed in Dallas when Ryan was fired after the 2012 season, and coached under Monte Kiffin in 2013 and then Rod Marinelli in the past two seasons.
Judging by cornerback Joe Haden’s comments when Henderson left Cleveland, he was well liked in the Browns locker room.
"Coach 'Rome was a great coach," Haden said. "He loved his players and his players loved him. He and my college coach taught me everything about playing cornerback. We're going to miss him, but this is a step for him in his coaching career."
