Lombardi has been long rumored to be the Browns' new GM since Jimmy Haslam bought the team, but that does not appear to be the case here. It's unclear what his role with the team will be. Joe Banner was named the new president back in October.
With this hiring, Cleveland now has its front office set. They hired former Panthers OC Rob Chudzinski as head coach and former Chargers head coach Norv Turner as OC. Together, they will try to turn around a franchise that has lost 11 or more games for five straight years.
