Bruce Arians told The Canton Repository on Sunday that the Cleveland Browns’ head-coaching position is the only job for which he’d be willing to come out of retirement. “Cleveland is the only job I would consider,” said Arians, who was in Cleveland with CBS as part of the broadcast team for Sunday’s Kansas City Chiefs-Browns game. Arians, 66, also touted his former boss with the Indianapolis Colts as a possibility for Brown’s General Manager John Dorsey to consider. “My guy would be Chuck Pagano,” Arians told the newspaper.

Michael Badgley was signed from the practice squad to the active roster.
Cleveland Cavaliers interim coach Larry Drew has agreed to a contract to remain interim head coach for the rest of this season — and receive a partially guaranteed deal for the 2019-20 season. Drew and the Cavaliers have been negotiating a solution to the issues that surrounded his reluctance to accept the interim role without receiving more guaranteed money than the customary bump up in assistant coaching salary that Drew will get to finish out this season.
