New Browns President Mike Holmgren said to media this week that it won't be business as usual with the organization, and he reiterated that theme in a major staff meeting Thursday.
At least six people were fired as Holmgren fulfilled his promise to make changes.
The entire pro personnel department of four men was wiped out by General Manager Tom Heckert. Also, assistant trainers Danny Long and James Williams were let go.
More changes are expected -- some in high places -- as Holmgren streamlines the organization.
