Browns interested in interviewing Rice for head coach position

Condoleezza Rice

But head coach? There's no precedent at all for someone without any coaching experience to become an National Football League head coach.

The Cleveland Browns' incompetence is legendary in the NFL.

Browns general manager John Dorsey said last week that he was open to hiring a woman as Cleveland's next head coach, and there is one prominent name on the team's wish list to interview.

A potential interview hardly means the Browns will hire Rice, but they are interested in talking to her about the job and seeing what she could bring to the position and the organization. Gregg Williams is now serving as the team's interim head coach after the dismissal of Hue Jackson. No woman ever has served as head coach for a team in the four major USA sports leagues.

Rice has become more involved in the sports world in recent years after serving as Secretary of State under President George W. Bush from 2005 to 2009.

Rice is a big football fan who has served on the College Football Playoff selection committee and has reportedly expressed interest in becoming commissioner of the NFL some day.

Recently, Rice led a commission on college basketball that proposed major changes, such as eliminating the controversial one-and-done rule.

"She's an incredible person", the source said.
