Former Browns Head Coach Sam Rutigliano remembers former Browns owner, Art Modell.

Rutigliano coached the Browns from 1978 to 1984. In that time, the team earned the nickname the Cardiac Kids for their exciting, late-game comebacks.

In this interview conducted just shortly after news of Modell's death was announced Rutigliano recalls the unique relationship he had with Modell.

The two were more than just boss and employee.  They were neighbors and lifelong friends.

Coach Sam says Modell loved Cleveland and believes fans should move on from the bitterness of the team's move.

"The fulfillment of his life would have been to bring that Super Bowl Championship to the Cleveland Browns," said Rutigliano.
