Former Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey is among those who have interviewed for a top personnel role with the Browns, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reported.
New Browns vice president of football operations Sashi Brown said Thursday that the team will hire a top personnel executive — not a general manager — and that a hire should be made soon.
Hickey was fired by the Dolphins earlier this month after two years on the job. He previously spent 18 years with the Buccaneers, three as the team’s director of player personnel. That’s the kind of role open with the Browns; owner Jimmy Haslam gave Brown control of the 53-man roster when Brown was promoted from general counsel.
The Browns previously interviewed former Lions general manager Martin Mayhew, and Cabot reported that former Eagles executive Rick Mueller is also on the radar.
