The Cleveland Browns have officially fired general manager Ray Farmer, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport:
#Browns source: GM Ray Farmer met with ownership before the game & was relieved of his duties. It's over.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 3, 2016
Farmer has been with the franchise since 2013, serving as assistant general manager for a season before becoming the GM in 2014.
He was suspended for the first four games of this season after a NFL investigation proved that he was sending texts to coaching staff discussing play-calling during games, which violated the league's electronic device policy.
The Browns will also fire head coach Mike Pettine, who Farmer helped to hire after the 2013 season. No surprise given their recent struggles, but it appears that the Browns are once again preparing to clean house and start over.Back to the Cleveland Browns Newsfeed
