Two sides couldn’t come to an agreement on a future re-structure of the organization.
Here are statements from the owners and Dorsey upon being fired:
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Cleveland Browns are leaning towards parting ways with general manager John Dorsey today, and that he’ll meet with owner Jimmy Haslam to finalize the details.
Dorsey was a popular general manager when he came on board to replace Sashi Brown, and he also made several big moves this offseason (many of which can now be debated as to whether they helped or hurt the team). It’s unclear if Dorsey’s departure would be a sign of disappointment as his tenure, or more of a “clean slate” to attract a better head coaching hire. Cleveland could also be thinking that they already have a GM candidate in-house with Eliot Wolf.
