Cleveland Browns consider interviewing Condoleezza Rice

In case you haven't heard, ESPN reported on Sunday that the Browns were interesting in interviewing former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, for their head coaching job.

She also recently chaired a commission on college basketball, which recommended significant changes to the sport.

Even if Rice does not become head coach, ESPN's report claims any interview process could lead to her becoming more involved in the organisation in an official capacity or as a consultant.

"I just want the best possible head coach to move this thing forward regardless of age", Dorsey said.

That's something Rice is hoping for.

Responding to reports that she could be considered for the Browns role, she joked that she "would like to call a play or two next season" if the team needed some ideas.

Rice, 64, issued a statement on Facebook on Sunday, saying, "One doesn't have to play the game to understand it and motivate players".

Condoleeza Rice will not be the next coach of the Cleveland Browns football team. "And at no time will I call for a 'prevent defense, '" Rice said.

Yeah, that went exactly as we expected.

A Cleveland Browns helmet rests on the field prior to the game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field on September 11, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has never coached football at any level, however. She also was one of the first members of the College Football Playoff selection committee, holding a seat from 2013-16.

Rice served as national security adviser and secretary of state in the George W. Bush administration.

The Browns fired head coach Hue Jackson earlier this season.
