Scheiner has spent the last eight seasons with the Cowboys, and it is believed that Scheiner (along with a host of other executives around the league) found Cleveland to be a desirable location, thanks to the presence of new owner Jimmy Haslam III and CEO Joe Banner.
This is a not a football-related move, as Scheiner will be in Cleveland to handle the day-to-day operations of the team.
“We are extremely excited about the addition of Alec to our team,” Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said. “For many years the Cowboys have been a leading innovator among NFL franchises, and Alec played an integral role in this success. We are confident that his expertise will be a tremendous asset, not only for our organization but our fans as well.”
