In The Region:

Jimmy Haslam’s first step as owner of the Cleveland Browns was to replace Mike Holmgren as team president.

The NFL owners unanimously approved the sale of the Browns to Haslam this morning, and within hours, Haslam named former Philadelphia Eagle’s President Joe Banner his CEO. Holmgren will step down at the end of the season.   

Haslam says that is the extent of changes, for now.

“This is the only personal change we’re going to make until the end of the season, and I’m not saying we’re going to make changes at the end of the season.  Candidly with Mike deciding this role no longer fit him we thought it was important to bring someone in so we have a good transition and can hit the ground running after the end of the season.” 

Haslam will introduce Banner tomorrow at the Browns training facility at Baldwin Wallace College.

The event will include appearances by former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, a devoted Browns fan, and vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, who were both already scheduled to speak at  Baldwin Wallace.

With 10 games left, the Browns are 1-5, notching their first win last Sunday over Cincinnati.

Haslam says fans may see other changes starting next year.

“We’re going to look at everything - except the helmet tone. … We’re going to look at the uniforms and the stadium, but it’s all about putting a good team on the field, and if you have a really good team I don’t think people care that much about your uniforms.
