After choosing Kevin Stefanski to become their next head coach, the Cleveland Browns have quickly found their new general manager. Andrew Berry, the Philadelphia Eagles vice president of football operations, is reportedly set to become Cleveland’s leader in the front office.

According to Sports Illustrated’s Ed Kracz, Berry is leaving the Eagles to become Cleveland’s next general manager.

It serves as a return to the Browns for Berry. He served as the team’s vice president of player personnel from 2016-’18 before the Eagles offered him an expanded role this past season. After spending a year working general manager Howie Roseman, Berry will get to take what he learned and make his own moves in Cleveland.

The 32-year-old graduated from Harvard University with a bachelor’s in economics and a master’s degree in computer science. A former cornerback in college, Berry began his NFL career as a scouting assistant with the Indianapolis Colts and ultimately became the team’s pro scouting coordinator.

Berry is respected throughout the NFL and was viewed as one of the league’s best, young minds with a future as a general manager. His background as a player and in scouting, paired with his expertise in analytics, makes him the perfect addition for Cleveland’s front office.
