Baseball’s cheating scandal is creating waves in Cleveland. Several Indians players, including pitcher Mike Clevinger, are blasting Major League Baseball for not coming down harder on the Houston Astros. An investigation found that the Astros stole pitching signals to help their batters during their 2017 World Series run. They used a combination of technology and banging a garbage can. WKSU sports commentator Terry Pluto says players have a right to be angry.

In A Flashback To 2019, Browns Announce Another New Head Coach

Jan 14, 2020

You may have heard this one before: The Cleveland Browns have a new head coach.

The team introduced Kevin Stefanski, 37, as the team's latest leader Tuesday afternoon — the 18th full-time head coach in team history and sixth full-time head coach since Jimmy and Dee Haslam bought the team in 2012. 

Stefanski comes to the Browns after one full season as the Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator and 14 seasons with the Vikings organization. 

The Cleveland Browns have picked Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski as the new head coach, the 18th full-time head coach in franchise history.

Stefanski, 37, was reportedly the favorite of Browns Chief Strategy Officer Paul DePodesta in last year's search for a head coach. After the Browns fired General Manager John Dorsey two days after Kitchens was dismissed, DePodesta was put in charge of this year's search.

The Cleveland Browns are looking for their sixth head coach and sixth general manager under owner Jimmy Haslam. And the jobs are becoming less desirable with each passing year. WKSU sports commentator Terry Pluto says Haslam is yet again changing his approach after firing Freddie Kitchens and John Dorsey at the end of the 6-10 season.

The Cleveland Browns have been "brownsing" pretty hard in recent months. This could be bad news for a team much closer to home, now that the Columbus Crew shares the same ownership.

Ohio State star defensive end Chase Young says he's leaving school to enter the NFL draft in the spring.

Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam says the team will hire a new head coach first, then allow the coach to have a say in who is hired as general manager after the firings of coach Freddie Kitchens and GM John Dorsey earlier this week.
