Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is under consideration for an interview for the Cleveland Brown head coaching role, this according to ESPN reports on Sunday. Rice, who chaired the Commission on College Basketball and served on the College Football Playoff selection committee from 2013-16, has no coaching experience, and would also become the first woman known to interview for a head coaching job in the NFL.
Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey said last week that he would consider a woman for the coaching role, saying: “I would like to see a man of character. I would like to see a man who can lead young men. I would like to see a man who has high football acumen. I just want the best possible head coach to move this thing forward regardless of age. It could be a woman, too. Do not look at me like that. I am serious. Who knows? We will look at everything is what I am trying to tell you all.”
The Browns fired coach Hue Jackson on Oct. 29 after two-plus seasons.
