Per the Associated Press, Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish will be heading to Cleveland in the near future to spend time with Browns head coach Pat Shurmur.
McLeish, during his club’s down time, will take time to shadow the Browns head coach per the advice of Randy Lerner, who owns both teams. ”Lerner believes there are universal transferrable methods both clubs can employ,” said an Aston Villa spokesperson.
Aston Villa’s CEO Paul Faulkner says McLeish “is always looking for any advantage he can get and he felt this was an ideal opportunity to exchange ideas with his American counterparts at the Browns.”
