  • Browns fire GM Kokinis

    Link: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4616312

    Kinda surprised it happened now. That Mangini stays around though is also an odd thing in my opinion.

    Very odd situation. GM and HCs are usually a package.

      I'm sure Mangini will be gone at the end of the season.

        Why would they do that? The Browns are so talented.

          I am shocked honestly. I would give the guy more than an off season to do stuff. I guess he should have told Mangini no a couple of times.

            This is a typical panic move by Lerner. What has Kokinis done to deserve this action and how is he responsible for this mess??? Mangini is responsible for controlling the draft and trades, Kokinis is a GM in name only and can only make suggestions.
            Another firing that makes absolutely no sense if it is confirmed.
            I'm sure he recommended trading Sanchez for a bunch of bums from the Jets, that trade has Mangini written all over it???
            This team is indeed a disaster of epic proportions and it has Lerner's decisions to account for it and Lerner isn't going anywhere. God help us!!!
            And proud of it!!!

              Nothing Lerner does will ever be good enough for you. For ****'s sake, everyone is sick and tired of hearing of your dribble about the man. It's bad enough it's all of the Browns forum, no need to bring it ******* everywhere.

              Also, it was confirmed, try reading the original post that has a link confirming it.

              "God help us" just stop rooting for the Browns then and stick to one of the other 4 teams you root for...

              Kokinis fired.

              http://www.news-herald.com/articles/.../nh1647108.txt

              Ernie Accorsi is the new GM.

              Mangini apparently was given an ultimatum. (no link)

              I love how Lerner is taking action now. Yes, it seems like this was another mistake at the front office positions but you have to swing to get a hit. I really want to know what the supposed ultimatum is for Mangini. =]
              My post about this in the browns forum (I know it's rarely visited).

              Also for Kokinis having no merit about being fired, he was escorted out of the facilities and the Browns legal department is also pursuing a case while going through all phone logs.

              Let's get some activity going in the Cleveland sub-forum!

                They should hire Charlie Casserly.

                    Why would Mangini resign if he can get a full years salary?

                        So are they gonna go after Shanahan or Holmgren after the season is up?

                          Ernie Accorsi is the new GM? Sounds like a good move.

                            billicek was on mike and mike this morning talking about how stupid of a move this was and how kokinis is one of the best guys that browns have in their franchise.
