Browns Want To Interview Condoleezza Rice For Head Coaching Job

The Browns are interested in interviewing former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for their head coaching vacancy, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported.

If the Browns move forward with the interview, she would be the first female to interview for a head-coaching position in the history of the league. The NFL now has three female assistant coaches: Katie Sowers (San Francisco 49ers), Kelsey Martinez (Oakland Raiders), and Jennifer Welter (Arizona Cardinals). The position opened up after former head coach Hue Jackson was turfed October 29.

As Schefter points out, an interview might simply lead to Rice serving in another a capacity with the Browns.

"She's an incredible person", the source said.

Rice is a lifelong Browns fan and was spotted on the field with the team's ownership prior to Cleveland's September 29 game against Oakland. So maybe it's time to start looking for radical solutions, although most people would think appointing the former Secretary of State of the United States as the team's new head coach would be taking things a little too far. Rice has also been rumored as a potential candidate for NFL Commissioner, should that job open up. She was on the first College Football Playoff Committee and was a committee member from 2013 to 2016.
