It is expected that Holmgren would be let go as the recently ex prez from the Eagles is also buying a share of the team. The whole reason he left Philly was to pursue buying a portion of the Browns and take over as prez here. Shurmer will lose his security blanket in Holmgren. More than likely instead of getting his 2-3 more years to show something like Holmgren was going to give him he will have to show marked improvement this year. Heckert's job is more than likely safe. He has shown a solid draft record and has a solid tie with the incoming prez.

Actually ties to the possible new president maybe what does Heckertt in there was a bit of a issue between them when at the end of his time with the Eagles if I remember right. Not saying it is enough to get him canned though.

Report: Lerner to retain 30 percent stake in Browns
Posted by Darin Gantt on July 29, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT
Randy Lerner, Pat Shurmur AP

Browns fans hoping to be rid of owner Randy Lerner are getting their wish, to an extent.

According to a report from WKYC sportscaster and the team play-by-play voice Jim Donovan (via the Cleveland Plain Dealer), Lerner will retain a 30 percent share of the team.

Lernerís selling controlling interest in the Browns to truck stop magnate (and really, that might be the best business card title ever) Jimmy Haslam.

Donovan also reported Haslam will have the option to increase that share later, but that leaves the unpopular Lerner as a small part of the franchise.

No orange pants please. The helmet is sufficient. No logos, none of that crap.

Win football games. The rest is illusionary.

Minority ownership is irrelevent, as Haslam found out. That is why he wanted a majority ownership. As noted in another thread, Bob Gries owned 43% of the Browns where Modell owned only 52%....and Gries literally had no say in the Browns operations. Randy will have no say either.

I wouldn't say it irrelevant. Owning 30% of a billion dollar company makes one pretty relevant. He's going to have a voice in the board room if he chooses to voice it. However, I agree that in the end his voice is one of influence only. It's won't dictate the course.

I don't know. Modell and Gries underwent decades of litigation against one another over the issue of say over the operations of the Browns (primarily over the team being used as collateral for Stadium Inc.). For years things were contemtuous between them, and always it was Modell who got the right to do what he wanted with the Browns despite Gries's objections.

I wonder if they will get rid of the "AL" on the sleeves of the jerseys. I would like to see it be replaced with Brownie the Elf.

Heckert is safe? Are you nuts?

NObody buys a losing franchise and keeps the FO. C'mona man, get with it.

You were praising Heckert a few weeks ago.

Praising him and recognizing his position atm isnt really at odds with one another. I love the job heckerts done bringing in the young talent, and will hate to see him go.
