The Browns have already replaced former General Manager Mike Lombardi.
But they won’t be replacing CEO Joe Banner at all.
In the early stages of Tuesday’s shock press conference, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said he would not be replacing Banner.
Team president Alec Scheiner will run the business side of the organization, while new G.M. Ray Farmer will run the personnel operation, and coach Mike Pettine will have control of the on field product.
Haslam said all three would report to him, as they wanted to “streamline the process.”
That’s only good if Haslam lets them operate, and gives them the opportunity to grow into jobs recently acquired.
