Browns Set To Reintroduce Jim Brown To A Role In Organization
Sources tell Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland that Brown will be formally introduced by owner Jimmy Haslam on Wednesday to a new position with the club.
The exact role will be specified at a news conference, the most important thing is it ends the latest estrangement between Brown and the franchise that hasn’t won a league championship since Brown was in his prime in 1964.
“It’s a big deal. It’s a nice peace,” said one source.
Brown has been unaffiliated with the Browns since former President Mike Holmgren effectively fired him in May, 2010, as executive advisor to former owner Randy Lerner – a position which Brown held for two years.
Brown felt disrespected when Holmgren offered a lesser role at a greatly reduced salary, Brown lambasted Holmgren in a letter and boycotted his induction in the franchise’s charter Ring of Honor class. In an appearance in Cleveland in September, Brown later criticized Lerner for not informing him of the change himself.
