The history of the Cleveland Browns from Wikipedia.
The Cleveland Browns are a professional American football team based in Cleveland, Ohio. The team is a member of the North Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) of the National Football League (NFL). Its home stadium is Cleveland Browns Stadium, where it has played since 1999.
The team was founded in the 1940s as a charter franchise in the All-America Football Conference (AAFC), with Paul Brown, the team's namesake and a pioneering figure in professional football, as its first coach. Under his watch, the Browns won the AAFC championship in all four years of its existence, including the AAFC's only perfect season in 1948, and continued to succeed after moving to the NFL in 1950. Cleveland won the league championship in its first NFL season, followed by two more in 1954 and 1955. By then, the team had appeared in 10 straight championship games and won seven. The Browns were NFL champions again in 1964, but have since been only moderately successful, reaching the league's playoffs 15 times and appearing in the AFC championship game three times.
In 1995, Art Modell, who had purchased the Browns in 1961, announced he was relocating the team to Baltimore, Maryland. The outrage and controversy that erupted, as well as the NFL's desire to keep a team in Cleveland, led to an agreement whereby Modell was cleared to move his team (which became the Baltimore Ravens) but relinquished ownership of the Browns' name, colors, logos and history. That paved the way for the formation of a reconstituted team that resumed play in 1999 after three years of suspended operations.
The team's headquarters and training facility, the Cleveland Browns Training and Administrative Complex, opened in 1991 and is located in Berea, Ohio. The team holds training camp sessions there each summer.
The Browns origins date to 1944, when taxi-cab magnate Arthur B. "Mickey" McBride secured the rights to a Cleveland franchise in the newly formed All-America Football Conference. The AAFC was to compete with the dominant National Football League once it began operations at the end of World War II, which had forced many professional teams to curtail activity, merge or go on hiatus as their players served in the U.S. military.
Paul Brown, the first head coach and namesake of the Browns, who won 4 AAFC and 3 NFL Championships as coach of the Browns, is a Pro Football Hall of Fame member, and is widely regarded as one of football's greatest coaches of all-time.
Early in 1945, McBride named 36-year-old Ohio State Buckeyes coach Paul Brown as the team's head coach and general manager and gave him a share in its profits. The move surprised and upset Buckeyes fans who hoped he would resume his successful run at the school after the war. Brown, who had built an impressive record as coach of a Massillon, Ohio high school team and brought the Buckeyes their first national championship, at the time was serving in the U.S. Navy and coached the football team at Great Lakes Naval Station near Chicago.
