Pat Shurmur, Tom Heckert expected to be fired on Monday, according to report

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

Pat Shurmur and Tom Heckert will part ways with the Browns at the end of the season.

Cleveland Browns coach Pat Shurmur and general manager Tom Heckert will part ways with the organization after Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The change in direction is partly attributed to new owner Jimmy Haslam, who purchased the team in August, and new CEO Joe Banner who took over in October.

The Browns are 5-10 this season heading into their final game of the regular season this Sunday. Cleveland opened the season with five consecutive losses and have gone 5-5 since. This year's team is largely made up of young players, as 26 individuals on the roster have less than two years' experience in the NFL.

Shurmur has a 9-22 record overall heading into what is reportedly his final game as head coach of the Browns.

Cabot is reporting that both Shurmur and Heckert will be notified about the changes either immediately following Sunday's game or on Monday morning.
