Condoleezza Rice on interview list for Cleveland Browns head-coaching job: report

The Cleveland Browns reportedly want to interview former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for the team’s head coaching job.

The team’s general manager, John Dorsey, said last week that he is open to hiring a woman for the post, and an unidentified NFL source told ESPN that the team is interested in talking to Rice.

Dorsey in a statement released by the team on Sunday, however, said Rice has not been discussed for the head coaching position.

{mosads}Rice also said on Facebook that she’s not ready to coach, but would like to call a play or two. 

The league has never had a woman interview for a head coaching job, according to ESPN, though a number of women have been recently hired to top decision-making roles.

“She’s an amazing person,” a team source told ESPN of the former Bush administration official.

Rice has been a longtime fan of the Browns, attending several games and wearing team jerseys in a number of NFL ads.

She has been rumored as a possible NFL commissioner, and served on the College Football Playoff Selection Committee until 2016.
