Will Cleveland Browns Consider Condoleezza Rice for Coach?

The NFL insider is reporting that the Cleveland Browns are interested in interviewing Condoleezza Rice for their head coaching opening.

However it happened that Condoleezza Rice's name became linked to the Cleveland Browns coaching search Sunday morning, days after general manager John Dorsey first mentioned that he'd consider hiring a woman to fill his team's coaching vacancy, it's not helping.

If the Browns follow through on it, Rice would become the first woman ever to interview for an National Football League head-coaching job. One doesn't have to play the game to understand it and motivate players. Just as anyone - male or female - would be if they have zero football coaching experience. And at no time will I call for a "prevent defense". He says the team's "coaching search will be thorough and deliberate" and Rice "has not been discussed".

She's a huge Browns fan, and met with some of the owners during a game earlier this year.


Rice, 64, is a lifelong Browns fan, a love she got from watching Cleveland's games with her father at their home in Birmingham, Alabama. "Those are the three basic things there that I would look for". "It could be a woman, too". But since the Browns are the team that's reportedly interested in her, the internet almost exploded. She was on the first College Football Playoff Committee and was a committee member from 2013 to 2016.

Social media users darkly poked fun at the 66th Secretary of State, who served under George W. Bush, referincing her previous ties to torture.

The Browns have a bye this week and will face Cincinnati next Sunday, when they'll have a reunion sorts with Jackson, who was hired by the Bengals as a special assistant to coach Marvin Lewis.
