    The Cleveland Browns had a second interview with Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine on Tuesday evening in Mobile, Ala., site of the Senior Bowl, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

    Pettine is the first candidate to meet twice with the Browns.

    The Associated Press, citing a person familiar with the Browns' plans, reported that Pettine met with Cleveland owner Jimmy Haslam, CEO Joe Banner and other members of the team's front office for about four hours but was not offered the job.

    Pettine first met with Haslam and Banner last Thursday.

    The Browns are still considering other candidates, including Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, a league source told Schefter.

    Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase reportedly withdrew his name from consideration for the job earlier Tuesday. Atlanta Falconsoffensive coordinator Dirk Koetter will interview, sources confirmed to ESPN, making him the eighth candidate to interview for the vacancy.
