BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Alec Scheiner has been named the new president of the Cleveland Browns.

Scheiner, 39, will join Cleveland after eight years with the Cowboys. He was senior vice president and general counsel with Dallas the last five years.

Scheiner will quarterback the Browns' day-to-day business operations in his new post, which will begin Jan. 7.

Scheiner, raised in Lower Merion, Pa., attended Georgetown, and in 2008, took over the Cowboys' business operations, which included football analytics.

"I want to thank the Cowboys for making my eight years there some of the most rewarding of my professional career," Scheiner said. "I am looking forward to this challenge with the Browns, which I view as a tremendous opportunity to start at the ground level with a new and exciting leadership group."

Jimmy Haslam III, who bought the team over the summer, leads that group, which also includes new CEO Joe Banner.
