Cleveland Browns fire executive VP of football operations Sashi Brown

Report: Browns fire executive VP Sashi Brown Former Chiefs GM John Dorsey is 'leading candidate' for Browns job

Cleveland will begin its search for a new general manager immediately, and ex-Kansas City Chiefs GM Ken Dorsey is a leading candidate, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini. That was the only firing Jimmy Haslam administered Thursday, though, as the Browns' owner announced Hue Jackson will remain the team's coach in 2018. It's also extremely self-serving to submit that Jackson, Cleveland's play-caller, knew in advance that his team would have trouble putting points up on the board.

The Browns have stockpiled picks for future drafts, with six additional picks in April's draft. Brown was named the team's top executive in 2016 by the Haslams.

CLEVELAND (AP) - One win in two seasons cost Sashi Brown his job with the Browns. We need to ensure that we maximize our opportunity for success; with our picks, free agency and building our roster.

The 0-12 Browns will close out their 2017 regular season with games against the Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens, Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Why Lululemon Earnings Are Zen
The company said it expects holiday-quarter sales of $870m to $885m and an adjusted profit of $1.19 to $1.22 per share. The Australia-based Westpac Banking has invested 0% in Lululemon Athletica Inc . (NASDAQ: LULU ) for 21,558 shares.

"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", Haslam added.

The Browns have three second-round picks in 2018 - theirs, and picks from the Eagles and Texans.

The Cleveland Browns are the only winless team remaining in the National Football League and, to make things even uglier, no other National Football League franchise has fewer than two wins over the course of the 2017 season to this point.

Those two clubs, however, have young quarterbacks - Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson - whose early success might be most responsible for Brown getting fired.
