As the Cleveland Browns continue to search for Rob Chudzinksi’s replacement, the rumor mill is churning at full speed. The latest is Bob Stoops from Oklahoma having the inside track to become the head coach of the Cleveland Browns.
While normally I am not superstitious, I think it would be a good idea for the Browns front office to stay away from anyone with the word Oklahoma attached to him. We still are having problems getting rid of the visions of quarterback Brandon Weeden’s underhand tosses that gave the opposition the opportunity to grab the football.
The Browns need to find the right guy for the job, but hiring a college coach with no NFL head coaching experience is going to require a learning curve. One that this Browns ownership apparently is unwilling to allow.
Further proof of the Browns ownership not being willing to let a guy learn on the job, was the Rob Chudzinski dismissal . The Browns thought they hire one of the brightest minds in the NFL when they hired Chud, only to let him go after one failed season.
Is bringing in a guy like Stoops really a good idea? I say NO! The ownership of the Cleveland Browns have a lot to learn and they are going to be patient enough to let a guy from the ranks of the NCAA learn how to win in the NFL.
If Stoops was smart, he would turn and run as far away from Jimmy Haslam III and Joe Banners as fast as he can. These guys are not to be trusted and they just proved it.
Besides, do Cleveland fans really want another guy with the word Oklahoma attached to him?
