ESPN NFL insider Adam Schfeter has some bombshell news on the Cleveland Browns' head coaching search.

The NFL insider is reporting that the Cleveland Browns are interested in interviewing Condoleezza Rice for their head coaching opening.

She would become the first woman in NFL history to interview for a head coaching position.


Browns general manager John Dorsey said last week that he was opening to hiring a woman as Cleveland's next head coach, and there is one prominent name on the team's wish list to interview.

The Browns would like to interview former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for their head coaching job, a league source tells ESPN.

If the Browns follow through on their plans, Rice would become the first woman ever to interview for an NFL head coaching job.

It's highly unlikely that the Browns would hire Rice, but they are believed to be legitimately interested in seeing what she has to say.

A potential interview hardly means the Browns will hire Rice, but they are interested in talking to her about the job and seeing what she could bring to the position and the organization.

"She's an amazing person," one Browns source told ESPN.

The Browns fired head coach Hue Jackson earlier this season. Several coaches have been linked to the opening, though it's unclear what direction Cleveland is heading in with the search.

Stay tuned.
