According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Browns want to interview former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for their head coaching job. How can the Cleveland Browns out-Browns themselves next?

The Cleveland Browns say they have not begun deliberations on potential head coaches, but did not definitively say Condoleeza Rice was not on that list, though they refused to confirm ESPN's earlier report.

Even if Rice doesn't get the job, an interview reportedly "could" lead to the Browns hiring her either in an official capacity or as a consultant. It hardly brings to mind political ties and torture connected with the murky backstory of 66th US Secretary of State, Condoleezza.

The Browns sacked head coach Hue Jackson last month after he managed three wins in 39 games after being appointed in 2015.

As much as the Browns admire Rice - she attends some of their games and was spotted on the field with owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam before Cleveland's game in Oakland on September 30 - she admires them.

A die-hard Browns fan, Rice was one of the inaugural members of the College Football Playoff selection committee, where she worked from 2013 to 2016.

Under Jackson, the Browns became only the second side to go through a 16-game National Football League season without winning, having gone 1-15 in his debut campaign.

A source confirmed to ESPN that 64-year-old Rice is "an incredible person".
