From: Columbus Dispatch
A well-placed source in the Cleveland Browns organization says those who think it’s a foregone conclusion that both coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Phil Savage will be fired at the end of this disappointing season are wrong. The source believes that Crennel’s four-year run is over — not exactly earth-shaking news given the rumors about the Browns seeking former NFL coaches Bill Cowher and Marty Schottenheimer as his replacement.
But the Browns insider said Savage likely will stay and added that although Savage’s recent profane e-mail to a critical fan damaged his reputation, it wasn’t the final straw with team owner Randy Lerner. The indication was that Lerner was unhappy with the incident but had decided to move on. That could change, however, if Lerner persuades Cowher or Schottenheimer to take the job. Both likely would demand say on personnel decisions and require either their own personnel man or accept Savage in a diminished role.
