Why Kevin Stefanski? Browns see him as first answer to fixing institutional dysfunction of the Jimmy Haslam era

Jackson felt that he and Dorsey were aligned when it came to how they wanted to build a team, what the structure should look like and, most important, who should be involved in showcasing that vision to Haslam. To Jackson, it was simple: With Sashi Brown out of the organization, he and Dorsey should cement their places in the structure and express to Haslam that DePodesta wasn't necessary in the process. The way Jackson figured it, he and Dorsey and the rest of the football side of the oper...

What’s next for the Browns?

The decision to “mutually part ways” (fire) G.M. John Dorsey happened because Dorsey wasn't willing to surrender some or all of his control over the football operations. So now ownership simply has to find a coach — an “exceptional leader” as Jimmy and Dee Haslam said in their statement making clear that they believe Freddie Kitchens isn't and never will be — who will first have to persuade the Haslams that he's the right guy. And who then will be able to do it.
