Everyone thinks the Cleveland Browns will fire coach Romeo Crennel, and that General Manager Phil Savage will be jettisoned if the team gets a high-profile candidate who wants full personnel control.
But Browns vice chairman Bob Kain says he and owner Randy Lerner are holding off until after the season to determine the fate of Crennel and Savage.
“What we plan to do is exactly what Randy Lerner said [on November 25],” Kain said on Tuesday, per Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “Immediately following the season he’s going to review everything and he will make decisions. It’s what he said to the press and it’s what he’s said to Romeo and Phil.”
Kain also described rumors about what the Browns will do next as “crazy,” but he then proceeded to acknowledge that the two men whose names keep surfacing in those rumors — Bill Cowher and Marty Schottenheimer — are people the team would consider.
“All these rumors . . . some of these things are crazy,” Kain said. “But it doesn’t take a genius to think that if the Browns are considering a new coach, it doesn’t take long to get to the names of Cowher and Schottenheimer.”
