The Cleveland Browns are wasting little time lining up candidates to replace the fired Rob Chudzinski.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the Browns have lined up its first coaching prospect in Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, according to a source informed of the team's thinking.

The Browns also have inquired about Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase, Rapoport was told.

Gase has just one year at the coordinator level, overseeing a Broncos attack that's shredded the record book behind the sizzling play of 37-year-old Peyton Manning, who, incidentally, is two years older than Gase.

Quinn returned to Seattle this season after spending two years as the DC at the University of Florida. Prior to that he coached defensive linemen with the Seahawks in 2010.
