The Cleveland Browns added a new face to their front office on Tuesday by reportedly naming Alec Scheiner team president.

Continuing the organization's massive overhaul, the Cleveland Browns named 41-year-old Alec Scheiner their new team president according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Scheiner previously spent the last eight seasons under Jerry Jones with the Dallas Cowboys, and will oversee all business operations starting on Jan. 7. Considered a rising star around the league due to his involvement in both the planning and development of the new Cowboys Stadium, Scheiner was named to Sports Business Journal's Forty Under 40 list two years ago.

Scheiner will take on the role previously held by Mike Holmgren, and is yet another integral piece moving forward for both owner Jimmy Haslam III and team CEO Joe Banner to build with. The fates of both current coach Pat Shurmur and interim general manager Tom Heckert each appear to be hanging in the balance with the overhaul currently in place however, and it could only be a matter of time before more changes are made.
