Cleveland dropped to 1-7 after Sunday's 30-6 loss in Chicago. Afterward, an upset Lerner told the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Akron Beacon-Journal that he would not fire coach Eric Mangini during the club's bye week. Lerner did say he would like to bring in a "strong, credible, serious leader" to help run his team.
Lerner did not expand on who that person might be or if that person currently worked for the Browns. He recently brought in former Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar in an unspecified consulting role.
