The Browns have announced tonight that they will let go of head coach Pat Shurmur and general manager Tom Heckert after Sunday’s game (Credit: AP Photo) As the Browns new owner Jimmy Haslam took over the team earlier this year, most believed changes would be made within the front office and possibly the coaching staff. Haslam said he would make decisions quickly at the end of the season whether or not the team would be keeping head coach Pat Shurmur and general manager Tom Heckert. Tonight, that decision has been made about their futures. According to ProFootballTalk.com and The Cleveland Plain Dealer: Coach Pat Shurmur and general manager Tom Heckert are expected to either be fired or part ways with new owner Jimmy Haslam and new CEO Joe Banner by Monday, league sources told The Plain Dealer. That means the Browns will be shopping for a new head coach and general manager this off-season. The Browns have a potential star in Trent Richardson who currently has 950 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns (2nd in the NFL). They also have Joe Haden, Greg Little and Josh Morgan. Unfortunately, for the new general manager they will be without their second round pick in April as they used it to select Josh Morgan in last year’s supplemental draft. Barring a win on Sunday, the Browns will have another top 10 pick in 2013.   The post Report: Browns will fire Shurmur, Heckert after Sunday’s game appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
