    This is bull 💩. There is zero chance the Browns would actually hire her so it's a PR stunt to satisfy the Rooney rule. This entire rumor is actually kinda offensive regardless of your partisan leaning

    Pasting from my original post from Bleacher Report...

    Condi would actually be a perfect choice.

    Fun fact: Her dream job is to be NFL Commissioner, actually!!

  • This would be an amazing example of agility. But I know nothing about football and my husband who does follow the sports response was: “no. This isn’t happening. It would be a disaster.”

    My Dolphins need to make some kind of bold move like this - some time in my lifetime preferably

    Oh, please she helped actively push us down the path to oblivion (war in Iraq, Patriot Act, etc). Have you no shame? Go sit in a library and read a book for the rest of your life. Or join the Peace Corps and try to atone.

    She has NO coaching experience. As we have learned in the past even ex football players do not necessarily make good coaches. Ridiculous idea.

    Didn’t know she was a fan. Well, she helped lead us to war against a country that didn’t attack us; perhaps she can lead them to victory and somehow redeem herself on the gridiron.

    Honestly she is a really smart, woman and has a lot of knowledge around the sport. She was previously a top name to replace the NFL current commissioner, I don’t know if Cleveland is the right spot for her but I’m sure she will look at the option.

    Politicians coaching sports, real estate tycoons running our country.... what’s next? Let’s see what happens next.

  • Secretary Rice is a Wonder Woman with super powers and it can’t get much worse for the Browns so why not?

    Conddoleeza Rice is a lady that I would vote for for President.

  • Seems more of a political move than a business move

    Might as well hire her. The worlds is falling apart already anyway.
