Browns make a non-football front-office hire

Scheiner

After the 2012 season ends, the Browns could be hiring a new G.M. and a new head coach and plenty of other new employees.

For now, they’re hiring a new team president.

The titles get murky in matters of this nature.  After all, the Browns already have installed Joe Banner as CEO.  He’ll have directly under his control, presumably on the non-football side of the operation, former  Cowboys senior V.P. and general counsel Alec Scheiner.

Arguably the highest-ranking member of the Cowboys not related to owner Jerry Jones, Scheiner was instrumental in the construction of Cowboys Stadium.

And if he had any role in the failure of the organization to secure the “cowboys.com” domain name, the good news is that his new employer already owns Browns.com.

    How is this even newsworthy? Must be a slow day.

    Good grab. Things are looking up for the Browns. And could this mean that Jerry Jones is moving some of his chess pieces around for a reorganization?

    I wonder what title Andy Reid will have in Dallas?

    Jones plays chess? I hope he does better at that than running a football team.

    Is he the guy that had all those portable seats put in the stadium for the Super Bowl?

    The new hire has already stated that he is going to raise ticket and concession prices starting next season. Enjoy Browns fans.

    Move the Browns to LA but leave the name and colors. Starting over again is better than what’s coming.

    This hire means nothing on the field but it’s just one more indication that Haslam and Banner are going to burn everything down and start over. As a Browns fan I guess that prospect shouldn’t fill me with dread, because it’s not like they’re going to dismantle a powerhouse, but still, how many times is this franchise going to throw away all of its progress? You don’t see the good organizations doing that. Rumor has it that Banner is going to bring in Josh McDaniels to coach and Mike Lombardi to be GM. Yeah, great, two proven losers. They’ll fit right in.

    Guess Jimmy Haslem’s trip to Dallas was productive after all.
