The Cleveland Browns have once again made a regime change.
According to ESPN, the Browns have fired executive vice president Sashi Brown, the man who was in charge of the Cleveland personnel department the past two season.
Hue Jackson will remain on the job and the expectation is that he will return for the 2018 season, but there is a chance the replacing general manager could decide that.
But for now, owner Jimmy Haslem plans on retaining Jackson.
Cleveland will now be searching for their ninth general manager since 1999 and it has already been inquiring about Sashi’s replacement for weeks now.
The Browns have been 1-27 under Sashi Brown and are repeatedly criticized for their decision to trade away picks that became Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson, but they are also an organization that has stockpiled picks for future drafts and created more salary cap space that any team in the league.
As for replacements, ESPN reports:
Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam are expected to interview GM candidates as early as this week, per sources, though they also already could have spoken with former NFL general managers Dave Gettleman, John Dorsey and Scot McCloughan without any permission or any restrictions.
Will the Browns ever get it right?
