CLEVELAND (AP) -Phil Savage is out as general manager of the Cleveland Browns after four seasons, a person with knowledge of the decision said Sunday night.
Savage, who joined the Browns in 2005, will no longer be with the team after the organization decided to go in another direction, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because there were still details of the move to work out. Savage had four years left on a contract extension he signed in May.
It is unclear whether Savage resigned or was fired by owner Randy Lerner.
Browns coach Romeo Crennel is expected to be dismissed on Monday. Crennel, who was hired shortly after Savage, is 24-40 in four seasons in Cleveland. He dropped to 0-8 against Pittsburgh after the Browns were blanked 31-0.
