Browns owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam spoke to the media in a pre-draft press conference on Tuesday. The zoom session featured a lot of positivity from the Haslam’s on the direction of their team and the recent success.
Jimmy Haslam was very quick to credit the pairing of GM Andrew Berry and head coach Kevin Stefanski. Both men were rookies in their positions but quickly brought together a talented young roster that won the team’s first postseason victory in over 25 years.
After noting the relative youth and inexperience of the leadership duo, Haslam offered this,
“Yet, if you came to practice that first day or heard his first talk to the team, you’d never think, ‘Well, I can tell this guy is new.’ They both stepped right in, they are natural leaders, they are very calm, they are thoughtful, and they plan and organize things well. I do not want to say it was a surprise because we had our expectations, but they surpassed expectations in terms of becoming the top person in personnel and the head coach in the NFL.”
