Browns want to interview Condoleezza Rice for head coach job

The Cleveland Browns, now on the hunt for a new head coach, announced last week that they'd be open to hiring a woman for the coveted National Football League job, and, reportedly, they already have a woman in mind: Bush Administration Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Rice is one of the smartest, most educated women in the country, and was one of the first members of the College Football Playoff selection committee, but that plus her lifelong Browns fandom don't exactly match up to the resumes we usually see from head coach candidates.

ESPN cited a source within the leauge and cited the fact that Browns general manager John Dorsey previously said he was open to hiring a woman as head coach.

The Cleveland Browns say they have not begun deliberations on potential head coaches, but did not definitively say Condoleeza Rice was not on that list, though they refused to confirm ESPN's earlier report.

Houston in talks with Carmelo over role with Rockets
The Rockets have a net rating of 11.1 points per 100 possessions when Anthony isn't on the floor, according to NBA.com stats. When asked about Anthony's status moving forward, D'Antoni defended his player and insisted nothing will change.

The Warriors wanted Green to cool off following Monday's incident and before the start a road trip to Texas. Clearly KD was furious, and his agitation only intensified after Green went at him on the sidelines.

Dorsey is even interested in interviewing someone with no experience: Condoleezza Rice. If Cleveland does follow through on the interest it would mark the first time a woman had been considered for such a position in the NFL. There are three women now serving on coaching staffs in the league.

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. "I'm serious. We're going to look at everything". No woman ever has served as head coach for a team in the four major USA sports leagues.

Cleveland's coaching search could soon take a historic turn.
