 BEREA, Ohio (AP) -Browns defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, once considered a possible successor to coach Romeo Crennel, was fired Friday after Cleveland finished the season with one of the league's worst defenses.
Grantham's dismissal was a surprise, coming just months after the fiery 41-year-old signed a two-year contract extension.
But his stock steadily plummeted as the Browns' defense struggled almost the entire season before ending up ranked 30th overall. The Browns apparently felt Grantham wasn't getting the most from his players and decided to part ways.
The team put out a short release announcing that Grantham ``will not be retained for the 2008 season.''
