It isn’t hard to understand why everyone in Berea connected with the Browns might feel like they are on the hot seat. Mike Holmgren will be packing his stuff and heading for Seattle soon (even though he will technically be employed by the Browns until the end of the season.) Pat Shurmur needs more games like Sunday in order to save his job for next season (specifically wins.)
The one whom most thought had a shot to keep his job- GM Tom Heckert, apparently doesn’t feel that way himself.
“Multiple sources told FOXSportsOhio.com that Browns general manger Tom Heckert has told people close to him that he believes he’ll lose his position with the team at the end of the season, and that Heckert was making calls to friends around the league as early as August about potentially landing on another team’s personnel staff in 2013. ” Zac Jackson/Pat McManamon
Ugh. If true, this is borderline come on into the office and brings your keys with you type of news. You just can’t have high level employees that are lame ducks like this. It generally doesn’t work out well for the organization.
