Cleveland Bronws director of communications Zak Gilbert is resigning from his position after one year.
Gilbert was previously the Oakland Raiders' head of public relations
“We greatly appreciate Zak's efforts, work ethic and contributions to the Cleveland Browns organization," Browns team president Alec Scheiner said. "He has been a true professional, and we wish him and his family the best moving forward."
Gilbert didn't state a reason for his resignation or his future plans in a statement.
“After a lot of thought and discussion, I’ve come to the difficult decision to resign my position as head of the Browns’ communications department," Gilbert said. "I want to thank everyone in the organization, most particularly Jimmy and Dee Haslam. I’d also like to extend my appreciation to Alec Scheiner, Mike Pettine and Ray Farmer, and thank members of the local media for the relationships we enjoyed. Working for one of the great franchises in pro football, the team with the league’s most loyal fans, was a genuine privilege. I wish the Browns and all of my teammates inside the building nothing but success.”
