There was actually talk in the past about her taking over the role of the NFL commissioner. She apparently is not only a huge fan of the NFL, but also has a great working knowledge.

How great would that be if Condi became an NFL coach? Now THAT would be breaking the glass ceiling!! I believe she's smart enough to understand and keep all the plays and what not in her head, and know when to call what plays and when. Then again, she may not even be the playcaller, one doesn't need to in order to be a coach.

I think she would be fantastic, she's smart as a whip!!


Thinking outside the box: Browns reportedly want to interview Condoleezza Rice for head coach opening

Every year, it seems, we hear about the same group of men interviewing for NFL head coach openings, the coordinators or college coaches du jour, a couple who want another head gig after being fired from an earlier one, and maybe one or two who get meetings but never hired.

There aren’t many outside-the-box interviews, not many outside-the-box hires.

Well, the Cleveland Browns reportedly want to go way outside the box for one of their interviews.

Browns want to talk to Condoleezza Rice

Citing a league source, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Sunday morning that the Browns would like to interview former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, a lifelong football fan, for their head coach opening.

Cleveland general manager John Dorsey said last week that he was open to hiring a woman as the team’s next head coach, but of the few women currently in the league, none are in a position to be head coach, at least not given the way teams traditionally do things.

Schefter writes, “A potential interview hardly means the Browns will hire Rice, but they are interested in talking to her about the job and seeing what she could bring to the position and the organization.” It could also open the door for Rice to take a different kind of role with the team.

If it comes to pass, Rice will be the first woman to interview for an NFL head coaching job.

Rice is Browns fan, football fan

Here's an older article showing what I said about the Commish:

Support Is Growing For Condoleezza Rice As NFL Commissioner

Support is growing for a campaign to draft Condoleezza Rice as Commissioner for the troubled National Football League (NFL).
American football, the country's most popular sport and a bastion of macho male culture, has suffered one of the worst weeks in its history with three high-profile stars facing accusations of domestic violence.

The crisis has led to calls for Ms Rice, a lifelong Cleveland Browns fan, to step in replace the beleaguered Roger Goodell as Commissioner.

As far back as 2002 Ms Rice described becoming NFL Commissioner as her dream job.

Now she is getting serious backing, including from former members of the Bush administration, for taking on the task of rescuing a sport whose image has taken a severe battering over the last seven days.

Earlier this week the Washington Post carried a piece by a member of its editorial board calling for Ms Rice, 59, to take over from Mr Goodell, who has come under fire over his handling of the domestic violence scandal which has engulfed the sport.

Politicians and women's groups were enraged by the NFL's decision to impose what they regarded as an inadequate two match ban on Ray Rice, the Baltimore Ravens' running back who knocked his fiancée out cold in the lift of a New Jersey casino.

He belatedly received an indefinite ban after footage of the incident was released by TMZ, a gossip website.

Mr Goodell insisted NFL officials had not seen the incriminating tape when the original ban was imposed.
