Sashi Brown releases statement thanking Browns

Brown was originally hired to be the Browns executive vice president/general counsel in 2013 and was promoted to executive vice president of football operations three years later in January 2016.

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam on December 7 fired Sashi Brown as executive vice president of football operations. 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.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that Cleveland is interested in former Chiefs general manager John Dorsey. The move comes as the Browns haven't won a game since last December.

The football and personnel departments have clashed over roster decisions and the growing tensions - along with the abysmal record - gave Haslam the impetus to make more changes despite promising continuity when the season began. "We thank Sashi for all his hard work and dedication to the Cleveland Browns".

"I think that is too much of a role to be the head coach and do all of those particular things, but whoever that person is is somebody that I would have to work very closely with and feel very comfortable with as we move forward", Jackson said.

However, the team's decision to pass up on drafting quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson in the past two drafts may have hastened Brown's demise and Cleveland has shown little sign of improvement since Brown took over.

The Browns have stockpiled picks for future drafts, with six additional picks in April's draft.

While Brown was done in by the team's lack of success, Jackson said that he did not doubt that he'd return despite a 1-27 mark.

Players in the Browns locker room are happy they won't have to start from scratch with a different head coach next training camp. I have never wavered on that, even talking to you guys (the media).

"Sashi is a good person", Jackson said. "My job is to coach this football team, try to get this team to where it needs to be and hold this group together and hold our coaching staff accountable to be the best we can be".
