Cleveland Browns Hire NY Mets' Paul DePodesta as Team VP

I guess the Cleveland Browns ownership is taking an analytical approach to rebuilding the franchise.

Paul DePodesta, a New York Mets executive and a key figure in the statistics-based approach to analyzing talent, has been hired to be the Browns’ chief strategy officer, the team announced Tuesday.

“We are fortunate to bring in Paul, an extremely talented, highly respected sports executive who will add a critical dimension to our front office,” said owner Jimmy Haslam. “His approach and ambition to find the best pathways for organizational success transcend one specific sport and his experience as a high level sports executive make him a terrific addition to the Cleveland Browns.

“While we are excited about what Paul will provide our organization, we remain fully focused on the critical task of identifying the right head coach and a top talent evaluator who will provide the football expertise needed to be successful.”

“Paul has invaluable experience in management and leadership with a number of highly successful sports teams,” said Executive Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown. “His ability to create better processes and systems throughout organizations, his use of data as a tool to produce better outcomes, and his relentless focus on looking for innovative ways to create more success will be a strong asset as we look to be as comprehensive as possible in our decision-making.

DePodesta began his MLB career as an intern in player development in 1996 for the Cleveland Indians.
