Coach Condi?

The Cleveland Browns flirted with interviewing Condoleezza Rice for their head coaching job.

With a record of 3-6-1 so far this season, the Cleveland Browns need to do something to right the ship. Even with young talent like Nick Chubb and Baker Mayfield, the Browns haven’t managed to get any traction this year. The team’s front office has decided to search for a new coach after firing Hue Jackson in Week 8 of the season.

General Manager John Dorsey made a bold statement last week when he said he wanted to interview former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for the vacant head coaching position.

That’s too bad, because I imagine that Rice would be a bang-up coach. I would certainly support any team that put her in charge. Who knows? Maybe that time will come sooner rather than later. Until then, we can dream of what Coach Condi could do for a struggling football team.
