Sashi Brown is Out, Hue Jackson is In for 2018

[image-1]The Browns have "relieved" Sashi Brown of his "duties," effective immediately. The team is "going in a new direction," and the executive VP of football operations will not be along for the ride.

Head Coach Hue Jackson remains onboard, and will continue to serve in that capacity next season.

Here's the statement from Pilot Flying J CEO Jimmy Haslam:

“We have great appreciation and gratitude for Sashi’s commitment and leadership to our organization but believe transitioning to someone with strong experience and success in drafting and building consistently winning football teams is critical to the future of the Cleveland Browns. Today we informed Sashi that we were going in a new direction. The 2018 draft and offseason is pivotal for our franchise, we need to ensure that we maximize our opportunity for success; with our picks, free agency and building our roster. 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. We have begun the process of having productive conversations regarding leadership of our football operations and will provide further updates when appropriate. We thank Sashi for all his hard work and dedication to the Cleveland Browns.”
