Browns Denied Permission To Interview Redskins' Danny Smith

The Cleveland Browns will apparently have to look elsewhere to find their new Special Teams Coach.

The Cleveland Browns’ request to interview special teams coach Danny Smith was denied by the Redskins, according to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network.

Smith’s contract is up, but it appears that the Redskins expect him to be back with the team if they are not allowing the Browns to talk to the 57-year-old, who has been with the Redskins since 2004.

The Browns have been scrambling to find a new Special Teams coach since Brad Seely bolted to take the same job with the San Francisco 49ers, under new head coach Jim Harbaugh.
