Report: Browns interviewed Doug Whaley for general manager job

Former Bills general manager Doug Whaley "formally interviewed" for the general manager's job with the Cleveland Browns, according to a report from Ian Rappoport.

The Browns, who had been working on a replacement for Sashi Brown for months, hired John Dorsey on Thursday night after firing Brown earlier in the day. The Browns had a 1-27 record since Brown was brought in to run the personnel department.

Dorsey had been with the Chiefs for the last four years and had spent 22 years with the Packers organization.

John Wooten, the chairman of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, told ESPN's Adam Schefter that he was concerned about the Browns' hiring process.

Wooten said the Browns failed to comply with the Rooney Rule, which requires teams to interview minority candidates.

The Browns countered that they had complied with the rule, but the declined to release the names of other GM candidates that were interviewed.
