NFL Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown will be hired into an unspecified role on Wednesday with the Cleveland Browns, the team he led to an NFL Championship Game win in 1964 before retiring a year later as the team's career rushing leader with 12,312 yards and 106 touchdowns.

According to the report Tuesday from the Associated Press, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam will introduce the nine-time Pro-Bowler at a press conference Wednesday at FirstEnergy Stadium.
