Hours after Jimmy Haslam III was voted in as the new owner of the Browns, the changes continue in Cleveland.
Haslam told reporters Tuesday that Mike Holmgren will step down as team president and retire at the end of the season.
The move comes as no surprise. Holmgren wasn't expected to linger as Haslam's regime settled in. Banner has been attached to the incoming ownership group from the start, and will take over football duties and run the team on a day-to-day basis.
Haslam described his relationship with Holmgren as amicable. The new owner said he hasn't decided the fate of coach Pat Shurmur, whose 5-17 record over two seasons includes just one win over a division rival.
Haslam said he and Banner will evaluate the state of the organization after the season.
That's a dark historical note Haslam and Banner hope to alter.
