The Cleveland Browns team was founded in 1946 when it was owned by Arthur McBride, the Browns thought about using the word Panthers as the team’s name. As there was already a team with the same name, they decided to name it the Browns after their coach Paul Brown. Their first head coach Paul Brown didn’t agree that the team would be called like him, but at the end he accepted the grand honor. Now the Browns belong to the AFC north division in the NFL.
