The 0-12 Browns will close out their 2017 regular season with games against the Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens, Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers.
It will now be interesting to see if Dorsey indeed winds up being hired to replace Brown in Cleveland and if he has any issues with Jackson remaining the team's heads coach. Their 1-15 campaign in 2016 was the worst in franchise history. In announcing his dismissal, Jimmy Haslam said Brown was told the team "is going in a new direction". The 2018 draft and offseason is pivotal for our franchise.
But the important thing to remember is that Jackson and Haslam are staying. We have begun the process of having productive conversations regarding leadership of our football operations and will provide further updates when appropriate.
What comes next for the Cleveland Browns front office now that Sashi Brown is out?
The Cleveland Browns are the last winless team in the National Football League, their rookie quarterback has been something close to a disaster and the general manager who'd been tasked with turning this franchise around has just been fired. Brown, who headed the Browns personnel department for the past two years, was the Browns eighth general manager since the team returned to Cleveland in 1999.
Brown was named the team's top executive by the Haslams during an overhaul following the 2015 season.
The low point of Brown's 23-month tenure as the top football executive likely occurred on Halloween, when a failed trade with the Cincinnati Bengals resulted in the Browns getting widely criticized for not getting their paperwork sent prior to the league's 4 p.m. trade deadline.
Sashi Brown was promoted to executive VP /Gm after the firing of Ray Farmer.
The Browns have three second-round picks in 2018 - theirs, and picks from the Eagles and Texans. This strategy has acquired the Browns many picks but has also passed on the likes of Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson.
