The Browns interviewed Steelers linebacker coach and senior defensive assistant Brian Flores this week for a defensive coordinator job, and the Cardinals would like to talk to him about another position.
Jan Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Cardinals requested permission interview Flores for a job as a head coach.

The Cardinals conduct interviews for their general manager before starting any conversations with the head coach. They have been given permission to speak with Sean Payton and their defense coordinator Vance Joseph is expected to conduct a job interview.
