Banner, Lombardi Both Out In Cleveland After One Season

On Tuesday, the Cleveland Browns promoted Ray Farmer to General Manager and announced that Joe Banner will be stepping down in the next two months. In addition, the team announced that current General Manager Michael Lombardi is departing the organization.

In other words, just as head coach Rob Chudzinski was one in done in Cleveland, so too are Banner and Lombardi.

The Browns hired Mike Pettine to be their new head coach just a few weeks ago and for his sake, I hope he is renting and not buying.

This change now means the Browns have had three different head coaches and three different general managers in the last 407 days, according to Chris Sprow of ESPN.

The Browns went 4-12 last season after a 3-2 start through the first five games.
