It’s that time of the year when everyone in the NFL, media will name another assistant coach from the Bill Belichick tree as the next up and coming. This year it’s failed head coach and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. It wasn’t long before coach McDaniels name was listed as in play by MMQB writer Albert Breer as a top candidate for the Browns.
No secret that John Dorsey holds coach Toub in high regards. In my coaching re/search 2019 articles, I have Toub listed in the number one spot. The process will be long and cover many, but as I’ll lay out below, he’ll be difficult to top.
Over the last two days, John Dorsey laid out the plan for hiring a new head coach. Dorsey started off confirming what I posted in part one of my head coaching series as to the make-up of the search team. While making a point that age or NFL experience would not play into the decision he did, however, list three items that would.
1st. High football acumen
2nd. Can lead young men
3rd. A man of character
Like always having a persona of winning will also play into this search. While I continue to read and research to stay on top of the possible candidates here is the updated list.
Chemistry is a term used to explain the relationship between players in the NFL. It’s something that cannot be measured or recorded, but its impact is nevertheless felt.

With this first step in the right direction, the Cleveland Browns, along with the loyal fan base, can start to move on from the marred past. Continue reading “It’s Dangerous, Browns week 10 recap”
It was posted today that the Browns ownership will turn over the head coach search to GM John Dorsey. As I understand it’s not the entire story, Dorsey will put together a team from the existing upper management and the group will conduct the search together.
While I do not know how many members will make up this group, I believe GM John Dorsey, Executive Vice President JW Johnson, and Chief Strategy Officer Paul DePodesta will be the three main members.
The Game: The Browns faced off against a very difficult team Sunday against the AFC offensive powerhouse Kansas City Chiefs. The contest ended with the Browns marking down another loss, giving them a record of 2-6-1. This didn’t feel the same as the 36 prior losses. The sense of the Browns having no future seemingly turned in a new direction. The team overall was able to cut down on penalties and run with a better flow. The new era of Browns football is starting and the team universe is aligning itself in the right direction.
