Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey has to make sure of one thing in regards to finding the next head coach.

“Just make sure you do not mess it up,” Dorsey said. “That is what I keep telling myself. Just do not mess this thing up.”

So how do you feel after a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter saying the Browns are interested in interviewing former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as a possible candidate? Don’t believe it for one minute.

In fact both Dorsey and Rice herself have responded to Sunday’s report.

“Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is a great leader, possesses the highest possible character and also happens to be a Browns fan,” Dorsey said. “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.”

The report does support something Dorsey said during his bye week state of the Browns press conference.

“I just want the best possible head coach to move this thing forward regardless of age,” Dorsey said. “It could be a woman, too. Do not look at me like that. I am serious. Who knows? We will look at everything is what I am trying to tell you all.”

Previous sports experience includes serving on the College Football Playoff selection committee.

A final decision on the next head coach of the Browns should happen during the off season. Rice served as Secretary of State during George W. Bush’s administration.
