Struggling Browns reportedly considering Condoleezza Rice as new head coach

Browns general manager John Dorsey said last week that the organization was "open" to hiring a woman as its next head coach. The NFL now has three female assistant coaches: Katie Sowers (San Francisco 49ers), Kelsey Martinez (Oakland Raiders), and Jennifer Welter (Arizona Cardinals).

In fact, the Browns are reportedly thinking about going WAY outside the box and plan to interview former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to fill the role, according to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN.

While it still is almost inconceivable Rice would get the job, the Browns could use the foot in the door to get her involved with the organization.

"She's an fantastic person", one Browns source told ESPN. How can the Cleveland Browns out-Browns themselves next?


The interview process could even lead to Rice becoming more involved in the organization in an official capacity or as a consultant.

Rice is a lifelong Browns fan and has in the past been rumored as an eventual candidate to become National Football League commissioner. Rice has also been rumored as a potential candidate for NFL Commissioner, should that job open up.

A die-hard Browns fan, Rice was one of the inaugural members of the College Football Playoff selection committee, where she worked from 2013 to 2016.
