Cleveland Browns announce new coach
January 24 , 2014
The Cleveland Browns have appointed Mike Pettine as their new coach.
The team made a surprise decision to dismiss former coach Rob Chudzinski and appointed their 15th coach 25 days after that.
"Mike is the epitome of what we want the Browns to be - tough, aggressive and innovative - with a blue-collar, team-first mentality," the owner said. "He knows what's necessary to beat teams in the AFC North. Most importantly, Mike has repeatedly shown the ability to lead his players to consistent improvement and success, clearly what we are striving for as he leads the Cleveland Browns moving forward."
