Browns fire executive VP Sashi Brown

Browns fire executive VP Sashi Brown

At the same time, Haslam announced Jackson will return as head coach in 2018 despite the Browns' being 0-12 this season and 1-27 going back to the start of the 2016 season.

From his perspective, doing so would make more sense if the Browns opt against affording him influence when it comes to tweaking the roster this offseason.

"Hue Jackson will remain our coach and will return for the 2018 season but we feel it is necessary to take significant steps to strengthen our personnel department".

They have a record of 1-27 in his time ... "We have begun the process of having productive conversations regarding leadership of our football operations and will provide further updates when appropriate".

Haslam does not want to trust those resources to Brown but instead to an experienced football executive yet to be hired.

The next GM will be the Browns' ninth since 1999, and will be the fourth leader of the front office that Haslam has hired since his purchase of the team from Randy Lerner was approved by the league's owners on October 16, 2012.

The world's biggest Starbucks just opened in Shanghai!
Revenue from the Asia-Pacific region accounted for nearly 15 per cent of Starbucks' revenue for the fiscal year ended in October. The company is riding that wave and expanding aggressively in China, opening a new Starbucks store every 15 hours on average.

Along with losing, the Browns have been consistent in front-office and coaching shake-ups.

Brown, who was named the team's top executive by owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam during an overhaul following the 2015 season, was relieved of his duties on Thursday.

The Cleveland Browns are starting to clean house. The Browns have two picks in the first round, three in the second and 13 picks overall in the 2018 draft. It's not yet known if Haslam plans to retain chief strategist Paul DePodesta or player personnel director Andrew Berry.

Brown and Jackson appeared to be at odds over several roster decisions and Haslam figured his best course of action was to end the relationship rather than attempting to fix it.

Jackson's survival would indicate he won a power struggle over Brown, the team's former legal counsel who had no previous experience running a team. McCarron right before this years trade deadline ended and you have to wonder if that may have played a small role in Haslam wanting to move on from Brown now.
