Cleveland Browns: Kevin Stefanski walks into an alarming situation
The Cleveland Browns have hired Kevin Stefanski as its next head coach. Reports have come out that he will have a lot on his collective plate.
Viking offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski has been hired by Jimmy Haslam and the Cleveland Browns as its next head coach. Stefanski, who has long been a favorite of Browns chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta, is coming in having spent the past 14 seasons working in Minnesota in some capacity.
While reports from players and coaches alike have been positive from fellow Vikings’, Stefanski will obviously have his work cut out for him in trying to shake a culture of perpetual losing in Cleveland.
Steve Doerschuk of the Canton Repository came out with reports of what Stefanski will have to endure as head coach of the Cleveland Browns. By accepting the Browns job, Stefanski agreed upon the following:

Doerschuck also noted that Josh McDaniels was really interested in the Browns job but wanted widespread organizational changes. That was indeed the end when it came to McDaniels in Cleveland.
Alarming is the word that comes to mind after reading Doerschuck’s story. Alarming because McDaniels came from a winning organization and had a detailed organizational philosophy on how to do things the correct way. Alarming because Jimmy Haslam thinks the organizational structure isn’t the problem.
With by-passing McDaniels ideals and aligning DePodesta with Stefanski, Haslam truly believes that his organization set-up is not the problem. And if history provides the truth to anything it is that the Browns organizational set-up is indeed the problem here.
And until Haslam will wise up and realizes that then history will be doomed to repeat its self. Good luck Kevin Stefanski, you are going to need it.
