Browns hire Padres' Brent Stehlik as chief revenue officer, according to report

The Cleveland Browns continue to reshape their front office under new ownership.

USA TODAY Sports

With the Cleveland Browns reportedly set to dismiss both general manager Tom Heckert and coach Pat Shurmur as soon as the season ends, the team has already begun reshaping its front office.

The latest hire, via Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, is Brent Stehlik, a former executive with the San Diego Padres. Stehlik will serve as Cleveland's chief revenue officer.

Schefter also reported that the Browns will not be interested, as originally reported, in New England Patriots offensive coordinator and former Denver Broncos coach Josh McDaniels as a potential replacement for Shurmur. Instead, Schefter says to expect the Browns to make a run at a college coach like Oregon's Chip Kelly or Penn State's Bill O'Brien.

The Browns, currently 5-10, conclude their season Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-8). They've been led this season by three rookies on offense. Running back Trent Richardson has 950 rushing yards and 367 receiving yards; quarterback Brandon Weeden, who won't play in the finale, has passed for 3,385 yards, 14 touchdowns and 17 interceptions; and wide receiver Josh Gordon has 46 catches for 766 yards.
