BEREA, Ohio -- The Browns fired their coach after one season. Running Shoes Uk Online . Now theyre sweeping out their front office. Owner Jimmy Haslam announced Tuesday that CEO Joe Banner will step down in the next two months and general manager Michael Lombardi is leaving the team. "Mike and Joe have left us in good position in terms of free agency and cap space as well as this years draft, where we have 10 overall picks and three of the first 35," Haslam said at a news conference. Its yet another stunning development for a franchise that has undergone nearly constant change in the past 15 years. Haslam also said assistant GM Ray Farmer, who was pursued by Miami to be the Dolphins GM this winter, has been promoted and will immediately take the over the teams football operations and lead the Browns during free agency and draft. Cleveland has two first-round picks in Mays draft and is well under the salary cap to spend on free agents. Haslam added that president Alec Scheiner will keep his current role. "Alec Scheiner will run our business side and remain as president, Mike Pettine will be our head coach and Ray Farmer will be our GM," Haslam said. "We will not have a CEO and those three people will report directly to me." The shake-up comes one month after the Browns finally hired coach Mike Pettine. Banner and Haslam had fired coach Rob Chudzinski after a 4-12 season, the teams sixth straight with at least 11 losses. Wisconsin said Tuesday that coach Gary Andersen was contacted by the Cleveland Browns for their coaching vacancy but decided not to pursue the position following a conversation with the NFL team, which spent 25 days to hire Pettine. "Mike will have final say on the 45-man roster-- who plays on Sundays-- and Ray will have final say on the 53-player roster," Haslam said. Banner, who previously worked in Philadelphia, was hired by Haslam to run the team shortly after his ownership was approved by the league in 2012. "We appreciate Joes contributions to the Cleveland Browns, especially in helping us as new owners," Haslam said in a release. "He was committed to creating a successful organization and bringing in talented individuals. We thank him for his work and dedication. We wish him and his family the best." Banner will transition out of his job over the next two months. "It is bittersweet leaving the Browns organization," Banner said. "I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Jimmy Haslam and helping him set the infrastructure for this franchise. I am proud of the talented individuals we brought in to help lead this team and feel that the Cleveland Browns are in good hands moving forward." Lombardis departure ends a curious second stint with the team. His hiring was widely panned by some Cleveland media members and many fans because of his time with coach Bill Belichick when he was Clevelands coach. Lombardi kept a low profile over the past year in Cleveland and was not in attendance at any major news conferences. "Were also grateful for Mike Lombardis efforts and commitment since rejoining our organization," Haslam said. "He is an experienced and creative NFL executive with a unique ability to see the big picture. He has tremendous instincts and I know hell be a valuable addition to any NFL organization. We simply wanted to give Ray this opportunity that hes earned. We wanted to move forward under his leadership and capabilities."

"I only want to go through this one more time," Crosby said Friday. The 24-year-old captain hasnt played since the symptoms resurfaced following a loss to Boston on Dec. 5. Doctors allowed him to return to full practice on Tuesday and while Crosby is pleased with the way his body is responding he refuses to put on his return.TORONTO - Jonathan Bernier stretched and skated around in circles in his crease that was barely scuffed up. The Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender did everything he could to stay warm.The result was the easiest shutout in Berniers career as the Leafs tied a franchise record in allowing just 10 shots in a 4-0 rout of the lowly Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night at Air Canada Centre.Youre just trying to stay focused and make the save that you should make, Bernier said. I thought we played very solid. We kept everything to the outside. Probably the best game since Ive been here.The Leafs previously allowed 10 shots against Jan. 5, 2002 in a 3-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators.On Tuesday night, Toronto (4-4-1) put up 37 shots and broke the game open on goals by Tyler Bozak, Phil Kessel, James van Riemsdyk and Jake Gardiner. Before that, Buffalo goaltender Michal Neuvirth stopped the first 27 that came his way.As Bernier stood at the other end and waited through 39-plus minutes of a scoreless game, coach Randy Carlyle watched and hoped that one bad bounce wouldnt cost his team.Those are nervous times because you know that sometimes fate in sports comes and bites you the wrong way, Carlyle said after the Leafs second victory in six home games this season. That was what we were worried about. Youll question that all the time.Neuvirth was giving the Leafs plenty of reasons to question themselves. He stoned Nazem Kadri from in tight a couple of times just three days after beating the Sharks in San Jose. Neuvirth finished with 33 saves.Our goalie was outstanding for us, gave us a chance, Sabres alternate captain Josh Gorges said. We didnt respond. Thats by far not good enough.The dam burst late in the second period after the fifth penalty of the game on the Sabres (2-8). Kessel sprung Bozak for a breakaway goal with 49.6 seconds left that snapped the Leafs power-play skid at 0-for-28.I was going minute-by-minute, doing my best like every time I play, Neuvirth said. I think it was a big goal for them. ... I think if we could go into the locker-room tied 0-0, it would be a different story in the third.It wasnt. Kessel scored on a bank shot from below the goal-line, van Riemsdyk on a cross-ice pass from Morgan Rielly and Gardiner on a wrap-around.The rout was on, even if it didnt feel like it until the Leafs poured on the goals.You just got to stick with it, Kessel said. I thought we stuck with it, and then eventually it breaks and we were able to get a couple goals after that.This was a response game for the Leafs after getting throttleed by the Boston Bruins at home on Saturday night.

Even if it was against a Buffalo team that could be one of the worst in the expansion era of the NHL, Carlyle wont discard these two points.Tonight everything fell our way, and well take it because we were in drastic need of a performance at home, Carlyle said. Because we were able to do it one night, it doesnt mean the next nights going to be easy. We know that were going to have to play, as we go forward, to a higher level than we did tonight.Defenceman Stephane Robidas said that if he and his teammates play as they did Tuesday night, Ill bet well win a lot more games than were going to lose. Unfortunately for the Leafs only three of their remaining 73 games come against the Sabres, who have just 10 goals in their first 10 games.This loss seemed all too normal for Buffalo, which sits in 29th in the NHL and could have worse days ahead.We had nothing, Sabres coach Ted Nolan said. Toronto had everything going, they were skating well. They deserved everything that they got, and we deserved what we got.Ten shots on goals was a new franchise low for the Sabres.Gorges, who refused to waive his no-trade clause to go to the Leafs and instead was sent from the Montreal Canadiens to the Sabres, said every veteran on the team must take responsibility for being better.I dont know who we think we are or what kind of team we think we are or what weve accomplished to be playing like that, Gorges said. We havent done nothing to be playing a cute game. We dont deserve to play a cute game and until we figure out that we have to work and scratch and claw and grind and dig in order to give ourselves a chance every night to win, then were going to have nights like this.Notes — Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf left the game late in the second period with what Carlyle said was a hip injury. Phaneuf returned at the start of the third period. ... Leafs forward Carter Ashton was a healthy scratch for the ninth straight game to start the season. Ashton would have had to pass through waivers if the team wanted to send him to the minors and is considered likely to get claimed. Carlyle referred to the 23-year-old as a good soldier earlier Tuesday for practising and not getting into a game so far. ... Sabres rookie Sam Reinhart, the second overall pick in Junes draft, played in his eighth NHL game. He can play one more before the first year of his contract counts with the 10th, or Buffalo can send him back to Kootenay of the Western Hockey League.___Follow @SWhyno on Twitter ' ' '
