BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Cleveland Browns owner Randy Lerner says he
will wait until after the season before deciding on the future of coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Phil Savage.
The reclusive Lerner gave a rare interview Monday and addressed a wide-range of topics. But he steered clear of questions about Crennel or Savage.
The two are under fire with the Browns at 4-7 and out of the playoff picture one year after winning 10 games and sending six players to the Pro Bowl.
Lerner also says he has no plans to sell the franchise he inherited following his father's death in 2002. The 46-year-old described Sunday's home loss to Houston as "sickening" and says his message to Browns fans was that he is deeply committed to winning.
