The Cleveland Browns denied discussing Condoleezza Rice for their head coaching position in a statement Sunday.
The statement read:
Rice also denied the report in a post on her Facebook page, via Nate Ulrich of Ohio.com:
Rice, who served as United States secretary of state under President George W. Bush, has no football coaching experience. She was part of the College Football Playoff committee from 2013 to 2016.
The Buffalo Bills (Kathryn Smith), Oakland Raiders (Kelsey Martinez) and San Francisco 49ers (Katie Sowers) have hired women as part of their coaching staffs in recent years. The Browns could also consider Rice in some capacity outside of coaching, according to Schefter.
Rice is a Browns fan who posed in a team uniform in a 2012 promotional ad for NFL women's apparel.
There is, unfortunately, no word on whether President Donald Trump will consider Hue Jackson for Secretary of State.
