Fred Nance Staying on With Browns as Senior Advisor and Special Counsel

The Cleveland Browns announced today that Fred Nance would be staying with the organization under the role of senior adviser and special counsel. Nance joined the Browns in December 2009 as the Browns' general counsel. A few weeks ago, the team hired Sashi Brown to assist with contract negotiations. It was unclear at the time what Brown's exact role would be, but it turns out that he is the team's new general counsel.

Nance will now work with Browns CEO Joe Banner, President Alec Scheiner and Brown on strategic and development matters.

"We are fortunate to have someone with Fred’s knowledge and expertise continue to serve our organization," said Browns CEO Joe Banner in a release. "Fred’s track record as a top sports attorney is reflected in his having been a finalist for the position of NFL Commissioner in 2006. As a Cleveland native, Fred’s keen awareness of the local landscape has been invaluable for the franchise over the last several years, and we are thrilled that his passion for Cleveland and the Browns will continue to benefit our club."

Here is an updated look at the Browns' new hires in the front office:

  • Jimmy Haslam, Owner
  • Joe Banner, CEO
  • Alec Scheiner, Team President
  • Brent Stehlik, Executive VP and Chief Revenue Officer
  • Michael Lombardi, Director of Player Personnel
  • Sashi Brown, General Counsel
  • Fred Nance, Senior Advisor and Special Counsel
