Browns want to interview Condoleezza Rice for head coach job

Mike Francesa, like most of us, had a strong reaction to Adam Schefter's report that the Cleveland Browns want to interview Condoleezzaa Rice for their head coaching job.

Rice is one of the smartest, most educated women in the country, and was one of the first members of the College Football Playoff selection committee, but that plus her lifelong Browns fandom don't exactly match up to the resumes we usually see from head coach candidates.

Browns general manager John Dorsey said last week that he was open to hiring a woman as Cleveland's next head coach, and there is one prominent name on the team's wish list to interview.

The Cleveland Browns' incompetence is legendary in the NFL.

The Browns are in search of their ninth full-time head coach since 1999 and fourth since 2013 after firing Hue Jackson on October 29. But experience counts - and it is time to develop a pool of experienced women coaches.

While it still is almost inconceivable Rice would get the job, the Browns could use the foot in the door to get her involved with the organization. The league now has three women in assistant coaching positions, but none in key coordinator roles that would merit consideration as a head coach. But Rice has been an outspoken activist within the sports community. Yes: The Browns, according to Schefter, are "interested" in interviewing the former United States Secretary of State, who has no prior football coaching experience.

Rice being considered for any head coaching job would be big news. She also recently chaired a commission on college basketball, which recommended significant changes to the sport.
