Condoleezza Rice: NFL head coach?

If the Browns do give Rice an interview, she would become the first woman ever to interview for an National Football League head coaching job.

ESPN reported Sunday that the Cleveland Browns would like to interview former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to be head coach.

Cleveland Browns General Manager John Dorsey says Rice has not been discussed as a candidate.

Rice is a lifelong Browns fan and was spotted on the field with the team's ownership prior to Cleveland's September 29 game against Oakland.

Ibaka has also plateaued after a promising start to his career in Oklahoma City, but he's still a strong offensive rebounder. If Chicago has any chance of beating Toronto on Saturday, they'll need LaVine to get his game back on track.

ESPN reports that Rice has made the "short list" of people the Browns are considering interviewing for the head coach position, recently vacated by Hue Jackson, who won only 3 of the team's last 40 games.

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.

She also serves on the College Football Playoff selections committee. She also recently chaired a commission on college basketball, which recommended significant changes to the sport.

Unsurprisingly, the Twitterati has been prolific with darkly humorous references to alleged "lifelong Browns fan" Rice's past role in the United States government, and other potential appointments for the Browns.

As for her actual qualifications, "she's an awesome person", an unnamed source told Schefter.
