*Well here’s an interesting story that’s turning out to be the equivalent of fake news, unfortunately. If you haven’t heard, earlier it was reported by ESPN that former Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice was being considered for the vacant head-coaching position by the NFL’s Cleveland Browns.
Needless to say, what we have here is an exaggerated story. According to the team, the report is simply NOT true.
“Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is a great leader, possesses the highest possible character and also happens to be a Browns fan,” GM John Dorsey said in a statement. “I have the utmost respect and admiration for all she’s accomplished and was honored to meet her for the first time earlier this season.”
“Our coaching search will be thorough and deliberate, but we are still in the process of composing the list of candidates and Secretary Rice has not been discussed.”
HILARIOUS! JIMMY KIMMEL GETS MICHELLE OBAMA TO SAY CRAZY STUFF SHE COULDN’T SAY AS FIRST LADY – WATCH
Via a statement, here’s what Condoleeza Rice had to say about the situation:
I love my Browns — and I know they will hire an experienced coach to take us to the next level.
On a more serious note, I do hope that the NFL will start to bring women into the coaching profession as position coaches and eventually coordinators and head coaches. One doesn’t have to play the game to understand it and motivate players. But experience counts — and it is time to develop a pool of experienced women coaches.
BTW — I’m not ready to coach but I would like to call a play or two next season if the Browns need ideas! And at no time will I call for a “prevent defense.”
Well, if youi didn’t know it before, just from that response, it’s obvious Rice is an avid football. In fact, her name has often come up as a possible successor to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Additionally, she was one of the inaugural members of the College Football Playoff selection committee.
