The Cleveland Browns are looking for their sixth head coach and sixth general manager under owner Jimmy Haslam. And the jobs are becoming less desirable with each passing year. WKSU sports commentator Terry Pluto says Haslam is yet again changing his approach after firing Freddie Kitchens and John Dorsey at the end of the 6-10 season.

The Cleveland Browns had their first press conference Thursday since firing both head coach Freddie Kitchens and General Manager John Dorsey. Owner Jimmy Haslam said they will hire their new head coach first then look for GM candidates. He said they have talked to more than 20 players and are dedicated to “getting it right this time.”

“I can’t tell you how many people in this organization have been checking references, doing background checks, gathering data, etc...”

The Cleveland Browns are once again searching for a new head coach. After leading the Browns to a 6 - 10 season, Freddie Kitchens is out of the role he held for less than a year.

The Cleveland Browns went from the worst team in the NFL last season to winning seven games this year, giving fans something they haven’t had in a while: hope.

WKSU’s Mark Arehart talked with sports commentator Terry Pluto about how the Browns finally started winning and why the team is an attractive destination for potential head coaches this offseason.
