With Brown's departure, the franchise will be searching for a general manager for the ninth time since it returned to Cleveland in 1999. That was the only firing Jimmy Haslam administered Thursday, though, as the Browns' owner announced Hue Jackson will remain the team's coach in 2018.
Haslam also announced Jackson will remain as coach for next season. Jackson, though, took a much different approach with the media on Thursday in the wake of Brown's dismissal.

Brown and Jackson appeared to be at odds over several roster decisions and Haslam figured his best course of action was to end the relationship rather than attempting to fix it.
Brown was named the team's top executive by the Haslams during an overhaul following the 2015 season.
The Browns have three second-round picks in 2018 - theirs, and picks from the Eagles and Texans.
