Winless Browns fire VP Sashi Brown

Winless Browns fire VP Sashi Brown

With that as the backdrop, the team announced on Thursday that executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown has been relieved of his duties and owner Jimmy Haslam released the following statement.

Beyond the move to part ways with Brown, Haslem also announced the head coach Hue Jackson was safe for the 2018 season while thanking Brown for his efforts.

It will now be interesting to see if Dorsey indeed winds up being hired to replace Brown in Cleveland and if he has any issues with Jackson remaining the team's heads coach. Some pin it on Haslam.

Brown and Jackson appeared to be at odds over several roster decisions and Haslam figured his best course of action was to end the relationship rather than attempting to fix it. We have begun the process of having productive conversations regarding leadership of our football operations and will provide further updates when appropriate.

CLEVELAND (AP) - One win in two seasons cost Sashi Brown his job with the Browns.

Haslam saying that Jackson will return in 2018 is probably the most surprising development.

Obviously, the Browns have not yet achieved the turnaround we wanted for a franchise and the best fans in the National Football League, who deserve it more than any other in sports.

Sashi Brown was promoted to executive VP /Gm after the firing of Ray Farmer.

Cleveland will begin its search for a new general manager immediately, and ex-Kansas City Chiefs GM Ken Dorsey is a leading candidate, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini.

The Browns are 19-67 since, and 1-30 since Week 15 of the 2015 season.

The Browns have three second-round picks in 2018 - theirs, and picks from the Eagles and Texans.

However, the team's decision to pass up on drafting quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson in the past two drafts may have hastened Brown's demise and Cleveland has shown little sign of improvement since Brown took over.
