Schefter: Browns want to interview Condoleezza Rice for vacant head coaching job

As much as the Browns admire Rice - she attends some of their games and was spotted on the field with owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam before Cleveland's game in Oakland on September 30 - she admires them. One doesn't have to play the game to understand it and motivate players. The former secretary of state is certainly brilliant, but she has zero National Football League coaching experience.

She admitted that she isn't ready to coach, "but 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, '" Rice said. He says the team's "coaching search will be thorough and deliberate" and Rice "has not been discussed". "The Drive" as it's known helped the Broncos beat the Browns 23-20 in overtime, denying Cleveland a trip to the Super Bowl.

However, he said last week that he'd considering hiring a female head coach, so it may still be shattered sooner rather than later.

Rice, 64, is a lifelong Browns fan and attends some of their games at the FirstEnergy Stadium.

Condoleezza Rice has held some of the most high-profile roles in American politics - but could she be about to switch her attention to another walk of life? "It could be a woman, too. Those are the three basic things there that I would look for".

Aside from that's unclear what, if any, professional experience she'd bring to the table. when it comes to football, that is.

Rice served as 66th Secretary of State of the United States from 2005-09. She was on the first College Football Playoff Committee and was a committee member from 2013 to 2016.

The Browns fired head coach Hue Jackson earlier this season.
