Today is Monday, Nov. 19, 2018. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning,

After firing Hue Jackson at the end of October, the Cleveland Browns have not yet announced a new head coach, but one name has come up: Condoleezza Rice, former Secretary of State and a Browns fan in TV ads.

Rice’s name is on the team’s list of potential candidates to interview, according to a league source that talked to ESPN.

However, general manager John Dorsey issued a statement going against the league source.

“Our coaching search will be thorough and deliberate, but we are still in the process of composing the list of candidates and Secretary Rice has not been discussed,” he said.

A Reddit user on the NFL subreddit offered one possible explanation, commenting the Browns could be trying to identify a leak in the organization.

Rice later took to Facebook stating she is not interested in the job but would like to see more women in coaching positions in the league.

If Rice had taken the job, she would be the first woman in a head coach position in NFL history. According to the same Facebook post, she would never call for a “prevent defense,” so maybe she’s not such a bad choice after all.
