Cleveland Browns Hire Alec Scheiner to Be New Team President


The Cleveland Browns made a front office move on Tuesday, hiring Dallas Cowboys senior vice president and general counsel Alec Scheiner to be the new team president.

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.”"
