Earlier today, the news broke that Sashi Brown, the Executive VP of Football Operations for the Cleveland Browns, had been fired by owner Jimmy Haslam. Brown has always been a very smooth person when he talked to the media, and his statement upon departing the club was no different:
“I want this to be real and clear, the way I know Cleveland and Browns fans can appreciate: Our win-loss record since I became executive vice president isn’t going to cut it.
We worked hard. I am so grateful to the people I worked with throughout my four-plus years with the Browns, particularly the people I worked with the past two years. We embarked on a mission to rebuild the Browns for long-term, sustainable success. We were committed and aggressive in our approach, even if unorthodox at times.
