Struggling Browns reportedly considering Condoleezza Rice as new head coach

Browns reportedly want to interview Condoleezza Rice for head coaching job

Still, he said her name is not on the short or long list to replace Hue Jackson, who was sacked as the team's head coach on October 20 after winning just three games in more than two seasons.

According to Adam Schefter, the Cleveland Browns are interested in interviewing former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for the head coaching position.

Oddly enough, while Rice would be the first female National Football League head coach - if she got the job - she wouldn't be the first woman in a position of power within the NFL.

"It's admirable that Browns general manager John Dorsey is openly saying he'd hire a woman as head coach", Korman writes, "but naming [Rice] cheapens the idea". He says the team's "coaching search will be thorough and deliberate" and Rice "has not been discussed".

However, he said last week that he'd considering hiring a female head coach, so it may still be shattered sooner rather than later.

The Cleveland Browns' incompetence is legendary in the NFL. "It could be a woman, too".

If the NFL is going to finally be serious about diversifying its coaching ranks, floating famous names with little-to-no football experience like Rice is not the way to do it.

Yeah, that went exactly as we expected.

One more thing: Condoleezza Rice for whatever reason evokes very strong emotions from both members of the Mike and the Mad Dog team.

Her sports interests extend beyond football, though.

She served as secretary of state under President George W. Bush from 2005-09. Earlier this year she led a commission studying potential changes for college basketball.
