It’s hard to find a worse value than the results the Cleveland Browns have had on the field from their six coaches since the team was reinstated in 1999. Chris Palmer, Butch Davis, Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini, Pat Shurmur, and Rob Chudzinski have combined to go 76-158 in the regular season during that stretch.
But, what’s even more offensive than the fact that this group collectively lost more than twice as often as they won is Tom Reed’s Cleveland.com report that all six of them received golden parachutes, which totaled $49 million, for them not to coach. Seriously, go look at how much each of them got paid to go away.
This story is at least the second-most egregious money theft associated with the Browns organization in recent months.
