Dorsey To Run Browns’ Coaching Search

When the Browns were in the market for a head coach in 2016, ownership enlisted the help of search firm of Korn Ferry, which ultimately led to the hiring of Hue Jackson. This time around, owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam will allow GM John Dorsey to have full authority over the search, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com hears. 

It’s probably the smart move, given Dorsey’s wealth of NFL experience and thick rolodex of contacts within the league. The Haslams will have input in the collaborative process, but Cabot hears that Dorsey will ultimately lead the charge and make the hire.

The Browns’ hierarchy has been jumbled in the past, but this could be a sign that the next head coach will report directly to Dorsey rather than to ownership. No decision has been made on that front just yet, however.

Mired in yet another losing season, the Browns may be a tough sell for this year’s top coaching candidates. However, Dorsey’s reputation and Baker Mayfield‘s potential could put them in the mix for some intriguing names.

    Do you take a top college coach that can use a style for Baker or get a strong veteran coach than can keep the locker room in order?

      Go with a young offensive minded coach, we’ve had enough of these retreads over the years. I’d love Lincoln Riley or Matt
      Campbell and bring a veteran coach or two on the staff to help them get acclimated to NFL.

    The headline should read “Dorsey to hire McCarthy as Head Coach of the Browns once McCarthy is fired by Green Bay.” That would be more accurate.

    “the Browns may be a tough sell for this year’s top coaching candidates.”

    What? No way. With the young talent on that team coaches will be fighting for the job.

    Well, one thing’s for sure, Dorsey’s pick can’t be worse than the last head coach.

    What la verdad said. I think McLardy is done in GB. It’s time for a change with this offense. His unwillingness or stubbornness with regard to how Aaron Jones is used is reason enough to send thin packing.

    Watch for Eric Bieniemy to get a long look. He’s already done well with one young QB, and is a known quantity to Dorsey.

    I’m guessing if Lincoln Riley will leave Oklahoma. He’s the obvious choice. While bringing in a vet D Coordinator and some Vet coaches around the staff. But I’m guessing the Head Coach, O Coordinator and QB coach will b young creative offensive minds.

    Only the Browns would hire a company that boasts on it’s website that “every three minutes we place a professional in a new job”. Dorsey doesn’t need a HC that can be little more than a 3 minute wonder.
