PLAYERS: Jimmy Haslam
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns
    With each passing day the Cleveland Browns are becoming more and more of a joke around the NFL.  They fired Rob Chudzinski after only one season and now they can’t seem to find a new head coach. Browns owner Jimmy Haslam sent out a letter to fans explaining why they’re taking so long.  You can read it below thanks to Fans, I thought it was important to take a little bit of time to update you on our head-coach search. We have had the opportunity to speak to a number of outstanding candidates. We have purposefully been very methodical in our approach. We believe it is very important to stay disciplined to this process and to interview all of the candidates on our list. We are strongly committed to finding the right person to coach the Cleveland Browns. We understood from the beginning that if we wanted to speak to all of the coaches on our list that we may need to wait until they have completed their participation in the playoffs. We are prepared to wait as long as necessary because this is a very important decision. Everyone in our organization is committed to finding the right leader for our team. We believe the head coach of the Cleveland Browns to be a very attractive position. We have one of the youngest teams in the League, a roster that includes five Pro Bowlers. In addition, we have more salary-cap room than all but one NFL team. We also have three of the top 35 picks in the upcoming draft and five of the top 83 selections. We are very much looking forward to adding a strong coach to our football team. On behalf of the Cleveland Browns, I cannot thank you enough for your valuable support and passion that you show for our team. We look forward to communicating with you again after the search process is complete. Thank you again for your phenomenal support and loyalty. (signed) Jimmy Haslam Need NFL Tickets? Loading...

The Cleveland Browns have changed me

The latest round of dysfunction in Berea has taken a serious toll on me as a football fan and it might have permanently changed my perspective of the game. A week or so ago, I got into a conversation with a Twitter follower who has been reading WFNY for some time, and he noted how much I’ve changed in terms of how I look at the Cleveland Browns. Where I once looked for ways they...

Despite concerns with Browns front office, I’m feeling patient during coach search

Despite my feelings about the Cleveland Browns, which I laid out yesterday, I can be objective about the team’s head coaching search.
