Browns VP of Media Relations Reportedly Being Let Go


According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, the Cleveland Browns will be parting ways with Neal Gulkis, their Vice President of Media Relations:

Per Cabot, Gulkis is expected to remain with the team until mid-June, which is presumably when they will name his successor. He was hired during the Eric Mangini regime after previously serving in a similar role with the Miami Dolphins. It is unclear whether Dan Murphy and Brian Smith, media relations coordinators who served under Gulkis, will remain with the team or not.

This might not be a big public story, but it will surely have an impact on the local media, for better or for worse. All I know is that in my personal experiences with the Browns' PR staff, I have contacted them several times over the past few years to ask a simple question. I never heard back once from them.

Cabot noted that "Baltimore Ravens director of media relations Chad Steele was in Berea for an interview on Thursday." We'll see if any other candidates end up getting the job, or if it will be Steele's for the taking.
