The Browns have hired former Kansas City Chiefs GM John Dorsey as their new GM, the team announced Thursday night. He replaces Executive Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown, who was fired on Thursday morning.

"We are thrilled to have John Dorsey lead our football operations," said Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam in a release. "John has been immersed in the NFL for 26 years, won two Super Bowls, built sustainable winning football teams and is highly respected for his football acumen.

"We know we have a critical and very positive opportunity ahead of us to profoundly impact the foundation of this football team. Bringing in someone of John Dorsey's caliber, his track record of success and his experience, significantly strengthens our opportunities to build a winning football team and that has been, and continues to be, what we want for our fans."
