Sashi Brown will step down from the Washington Wizards as chairman of the Baltimore Ravens on Friday.
Sashi Brown, 45, is the third president in Baltimore Ravens history and will succeed Dick Cass. The latter has been in office for 18 years and will retire at the age of 76.
Sashi Brown is expected to join the Baltimore Ravens in March and officially take over as team president in April. He will oversee various operations within the club, including players, staff personnel, coaching, sales, operations, communications and commercial operations.
Sashi Brown played against the Baltimore Ravens in the 2017 season, and Cleveland Browns is executive vice president of football operations. He and then coach Hue Jackson led the team only 1-27. But in the long run, it also allows Sashi Brown to accumulate draft picks and free up more cap space.
Dick Cass, who took over in 2004, was the first person hired by then-new boss Steve Bisciotti. He helped the team make multiple decisions at the time, including hiring John Harbaugh.
