Former Chiefs Exec Promoted to Cleveland Browns GM Position


Former Kansas City Chiefs Director of Pro Personnel was promoted from Assistant GM to the general manager position of the Cleveland Browns this morning.

In the ultimate show of discombobulation, the Browns have now fired their head coach after only one year, hired a new guy and then fired their GM and it looks like the CEO is on his way out too. However, as the dust begins to settle in Cleveland, it appears the team may be trying to get its feet back under it. By promoting Farmer, they’re well on their way.

Farmer served with the Chiefs from 2006 – 2012, so the man is no stranger to adversity. Having served under the “King” Carl Petersen and Herm “Harm” Edwards regime as well as the Scott Pioli, ToddHaley/Romeo Crennel debacle, Farmer knows what a bad team looks like. Hopefully for the Browns’ sake, he can take what he’s learned from his experiences and turn that team around.

He’ll have a new head coach and two first-round draft picks to get him started on his way. However, taking over just three months before the draft will provide him an uphill battle.

We here at Arrowhead Addict wish Mr. Farmer the best of luck.

    At last, Haslam has used his brain. Banner and Lombardi (with Haslam included) were called “The Three Stooges” by many after they fired their latest HC. Banner and Lombardi were the two who needed to check their pink slips, instead. Funny thing about Farmer is many “pundits” only thought his interviews with the Dolphins and Browns were just using “The Rooney Rule”. Great hire and best wishes to Mr Farmer.
