Illustration for article titled Joe Banner, Michael Lombardi Out In Cleveland

After a disastrous year capped off by a prolonged, embarrassing coaching search, the Cleveland Browns have cleaned house in the front office. CEO Joe Banner is "stepping down," and GM Michael Lombardi doesn't even get to pretend that he's leaving by choice—he's "departing the organization."

If you're keeping score, that's a head coach and general manager fired after one season, a CEO forced out after just under two. New coach Mike Pettine and new GM Ray Farmer should probably rent—this trash fire cannot be contained, and the chief arsonist may be headed to federal prison.
