Browns Hire Eliot Wolf As Assistant GM, Name Alonzo Highsmith VP Player Personnel As Front Office Reshuffling Continues
Andrew Berry remains vice president of player personnel along with Highsmith. Ken Kovach transitions to a vice president role in the strategy department led by chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta.
Pettine went 10-22 in 2 seasons as head coach of the Browns, including a 7-9 finish in 2014 that ranks as the third best finish to a season since the franchise returned in 1999. The Browns have won 1 game in 2 years since Pettine was fired under Hue Jackson.
Wolf, who was scheduled to meet this week with Dorsey and reportedly interviewed on Tuesday, is a hot commodity since new Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst has decided to give him the green light to explore opportunities elsewhere.
It is an odd trend that has spanned the last 6 years, which means that Monday night’s 26-23 overtime victory for Alabama over Georgia should mean that James will hoist the Larry O’Brien Trophy for the fourth time in his NBA career.
Wolf is the second former Packers executive that Dorsey has pursued since taking over as general manager on Dec. 7.
Cleveland loves the Browns and those who play for them. Always has. Always will. For better or for worse. ‘Till death do us part. They’re just still waiting for the Browns to finally love them back.
Manziel posted a picture of him doing his famous “money sign” in a Browns uniform with the caption “0-16szn.” That caption has since been removed from the post which has received nearly 200,000 likes.
Frustrated by nearly 19 years of losing, coaching and front office changes, personnel decisions that didn’t work out and a quarterback carousel counter currently at 28 and still spinning, a group of fans gathered outside of FirstEnergy Stadium for what they called a ‘Perfect Season parade’ – a tribute to the Browns’ 0-16 season and record-setting futility.
The Browns are expected to select a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft and 2 of the top quarterbacks in college football – UCLA’s Josh Rosen and USC’s Sam Darnold – will be available after declaring for the draft Wednesday night.
It takes a cataclysmic series of events for an NFL team in this era to go winless during a season but the stars aligned to conspire against the Browns in 2017.
