Hue Jackson comments on Browns after exit of Sashi Brown

"We are thrilled to have John Dorsey lead our football operations", began owner Jimmy Halsam's statement, "Bringing in someone of John Dorsey's caliber, his track record of success and his experience, significantly strengthens our opportunities to build a winning football team and that has been, and continues to be, what we want for our fans".

Dorsey had been with the Chiefs for the last four years and had spent 22 years with the Packers organization.

As the news of Sashi Brown's dismissal filtered out Wednesday, Hue Jackson's focus remained centered on his role in the Browns' struggles over the past two seasons. Schefter added that the Browns talked to other candidates and satisfied the Rooney Rule, which dictates teams must interview minority candidates, and you're bound to hear a lot of criticism of how the Browns turned that rule into a farce with this hiring.

The Browns announced Thursday they would keep Hue Jackson as their coach at least through the 2018 season. Team chairman Clark Hunt's decision to fire Dorsey was fueled, in part, by concerns about his internal communication and management styles, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation who spoke to The Star on condition of anonymity.

"To me, that's exciting", Dorsey said of taking over as GM.

"John and Hue have spent nearly their adult life in the NFL", Haslam said. "I have a high degree of confidence they will be perfectly aligned, and they both understand how important the alignment is for our success". It has become commonplace to see a firing of Browns personnel after disappointing seasons dating back to their return in 1999. It isn't good enough right now - I'm being very honest with you - but I think the things we are trying to accomplish, I think some of them we have done better here in the building.

Jackson said he is confident Dorsey will learn the coaching staff and their systems.

Every time you watch Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz play football and you smile, make sure you thank the Cleveland Browns.
