Cleveland Browns incoming owner, Jimmy Haslam III, has stated that he doesn't plan on making any immediate changes once the sale of the team is final. This comes after weeks of speculation that he will immediately replace team President Mike Holmgren with rumored part owner, Joe Banner.
Additionally, given the Browns 0-4 start and 10 game (and counting) losing streak dating back to last season, many fans and media members believe Head Coach Pat Shurmur is on his way out as well.
The $1 Billion sale will be final on October 16th as the NFL owners will vote on the matter. Haslam stated today through a team spokesman, that changes "are not something we will discuss until the end of the year".
Does this mean no changes will occur during the season? Maybe. Maybe not. But what do you expect the new owner to say? It would be extremely unprofessional to say anything other than what he said and to potentially distract the team and sabotage their chances at turning this season around. However slim they may be.
