Cleveland Browns 'want to interview Condoleezza Rice for head coach role'

While those talks never materialized, the Browns interest in Rice as a head coach, seems genuine.

The Cleveland Browns, now on the hunt for a new head coach, announced last week that they'd be open to hiring a woman for the coveted National Football League job, and, reportedly, they already have a woman in mind: Bush Administration Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. How can the Cleveland Browns out-Browns themselves next?

The Browns sacked head coach Hue Jackson last month after he managed three wins in 39 games after being appointed in 2015.

Schefter reports that Browns general manager John Dorsey said last week that he is open to hiring woman as the team's next head coach.

In a statement he wrote, "Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is a great leader, possesses the highest possible character and also happens to be a Browns fan". So maybe it's time to start looking for radical solutions, although most people would think appointing the former Secretary of State of the United States as the team's new head coach would be taking things a little too far.

Rice is a lifelong Browns fan and was spotted on the field with the team's ownership prior to Cleveland's September 29 game against Oakland.

Rice is reportedly a lifelong Browns fan. Earlier this year she led a commission studying potential changes for college basketball.

She has no coaching experience but has served as a member of the College Football play-off selection committee.

A source confirmed to ESPN that 64-year-old Rice is "an incredible person".
