Cleveland Browns Organization Profile
The Cleveland Browns today announced that they have named Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown as a special advisor, rejoining the organization after a split wit them when Mike Holmgren was running the team.
In his role, Brown will perform in a variety of off-field capacities with the club and in the community. Brown previously served as an Executive Advisor with the team, a position he held through 2010.
"I am excited to be back and a part of a franchise that will always be very close to my heart," Brown said. "I want to thank Jimmy Haslam and Joe Banner for giving me this chance to return to the organization and the great city of Cleveland, whose fans are the best in the NFL and who always have supported me. I look forward to getting started and once again make difference, not just with the franchise but in the Northeast Ohio community."
"Jim Brown is one of the most iconic figures, not just in Cleveland, but the entire NFL," Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said. "His playing career still stands as one of the most remarkable in league annals, and his work in the community since his retirement, especially with our youth, has been just as impressive. He will be a tremendous asset to our organization and we are thrilled that he will be representing the Browns in many different capacities."
Brown led the Browns in rushing in eight of his nine seasons. He appeared in nine straight Pro Bowls and was named the NFL's MVP three times (1957, 1958 and 1965). Brown owns team records for most combined net yards (15,459), career rushing yards (12,312), most points in one season (126), career TDs (126), rushing TDs (106), most consecutive games scoring a TD (10) and most 1,000 yard seasons (7).
Brown's number 32 was retired by the club and he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971.
