BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns CEO Joe Banner has spent his first weeks on the job assessing, evaluating and questioning. Soon, he'll start making changes - and some of them could be major.
Banner, who spent 19 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles before he was hired by new Cleveland owner Jimmy Haslam, said Friday he remains ``open-minded'' about coach Pat Shurmur, whose future with the Browns could be tied to the final seven games of this season. Banner has been impressed with how the Browns have continued to play hard under Shurmur, who is just 6-19 in two seasons.
Banner and Shurmur spent 10 seasons working together with the Eagles. Banner admires Shurmur and believes he possesses some of the qualities to be a successful NFL coach. He added no coach should be judged solely on wins and losses.
