The Cleveland Browns are reportedly interested in interviewing former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for the head coaching opening, according to a report by ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.

The Browns expressed interest in interviewing a woman for the position and it appears that it's going to happen.

From ESPN.com:

Browns general manager John Dorsey said last week that he was open 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 it, Rice would become the first woman ever to interview for an NFL head-coaching job.

Rice is a longtime Browns fan and has reportedly long been interested in the franchise.

News of the Browns wanting to interview her for the head coaching opening sent shockwaves throughout the NFL.

Rice reportedly has familiarity with the Browns' front office, too.
