Most notably, however, the Browns have simply failed to pick the right quarterback.
Brown joined the organization in 2013 and was promoted to VP in 2016.
Brown's regime has been marked with strikeouts at the quarterback position, namely trading out of the No. 2 spot in the 2016 National Football League draft as Philadelphia moved up to select Carson Wentz.
ESPN was first to report Brown's dismissal. Haslam, wisely this time, is not going to trust those valuable picks to Brown.
Names are already surfacing as possibly replacements for Brown. A bevy of rumours are floating around for whom they are looking at, with former Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey taking the lead.
Euro 2020 to begin in Rome
Should the Republic of Ireland qualify for Euro 2020, they will play one of their group games in Bilbao. England's national stadium has been paired with Glasgow to host the six matches in Group D .
Scot McCloughan is another possibility.
Later in that piece, it was noted Dorsey dismissed two senior, successful personnel executives without any explanation.
Former Browns' linebacker Chris Spielman is pushing for his brother, Rick Spielman, now general manager of the Minnesota Vikings, to be hired as Browns president.
The Browns have stockpiled picks for future drafts, with six additional picks in April's draft. The team now holds 10 picks for 2018.
Cleveland's next personnel leader will be tasked with selecting that player. "The 2018 draft and offseason is pivotal for our franchise".
Who might take the job for the Browns, who have a 4-40 record since the start of the 2015 season?
