Hue Jackson Out After 3 Miserable Seasons.
Early Monday morning, the Cleveland Browns announced that they would be parting ways with third-year Head Coach Hue Jackson, along with first-year Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley.
Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams has been announced as the interim head coach, and a new coordinator on the offensive side has yet to be announced.
This move comes on the heels of a disappointing 33-18 loss to Pittsburgh, in a game where Cleveland had plenty of chances to get back in the game, but questionable play calling took center stage.
With a talented, young roster, including players such as Jarvis Landry and first-overall pick Baker Mayfield, and a defense loaded with top picks of years previous, the statement from the Browns is that they’re ready to win now, and won’t accept a losing culture anymore.
Cleveland hasn’t been as awful as seasons past, currently sitting at (2-5-1), which is still a last place record in the AFC North.
The team started off with a rough schedule, playing half of their games against teams with winning records, including a highlight win against the Ravens.
The lack of a good kicker haunted Cleveland in multiple games, as the team would perhaps have two more wins (against New Orleans and Tampa Bay) with consistent special teams play, putting them at (4-4-1). In classic Browns fashion, this has become a year of what-ifs, even if the future is looking brighter.
