Found January 07, 2013 on Cleveland Frowns:
One nice thing about how Randy Lerner never really cared about being the Browns owner was that Lerner never made a show of camping out for a week in the desert to to make his “top choice” to fill a head coaching vacancy an “an offer he couldn’t refuse,” then letting it be reported by every major outlet under the sun that he had “a done deal” with this top choice, and that his lawyers were in the desert to finalize as soon as the top choice finished a polite lunch with a lesser suitor, only to have it come out a day later that it wasn’t a “done deal” at all but in fact a deal that was never going to happen, before finally leaking a pathetic statement that he didn’t want the guy after all “because [he wasn't] certain [the candidate's] heart was 100 percent into leaving” his job as a college coach. Once again, no one could have ever made this up. So what percent into leaving Oregon was Chip Kelly’s heart? 99? Six? Or was it just that Kelly didn’t want to work for Jimmy Hasla
