Cleveland Browns fire executive VP Sashi Brown


The next Cleveland Browns reset began Thursday with the firing of executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown. 

ESPN was first to report the end for Brown, who was hired in January 2016 as part of a new front office group that has seen the team go 1-27. 

The Browns are 0-12 this season with four games left.  

Brown was hired from the Jacksonville Jaguars front office, where his responsibilities included contract negotiation, employment matters, insurance and risk management, intellectual property and licensing issues and litigation management according to the team’s website. 

This move led to immediate speculation about the job security of Paul DePodesta, the chief strategy officer who previously had worked in baseball, and head coach Hue Jackson. 

While confirming reports Brown had been fired, team owner Jimmy Haslam said Jackson will remain the team’s coach for 2018. 

Jackson was the Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator before taking his current job in Cleveland.
