Cleveland Browns Fire Head Coach Hue Jackson

Cleveland, which holds a 2-5-1 record this season, also reportedly worked out Junior Galette on Monday.

The Browns' offense has produced duds nearly every week this season.

Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports that ownership informed Jackson that "he wasn't doing a good job of leading", and that they believed "his offense and defense had regressed".

Since being smitten apparently was enough to keep Hue Jackson around despite three wins in 39 games, it could be enough to get Haley more than eight.

Jackson arguably should have been fired during the 2017 season.

Dorsey, dating to when he got the job, should have had several candidates in mind to run the Browns. In the interim, it will be defensive coordinator Gregg Williams - he of the Bountygate scandal - taking the reins, according to ESPN. Williams will be the fifth coach, the next hire the sixth.




The Browns have 2018 NFL Draft pick Baker Mayfield at quarterback.

Worth a try, though Riley could see the Browns job as trading down or hold out for a better National Football League job.

Meet today's Spanos, truck-stop magnate Jimmy Haslam, who bought the Cleveland Browns in October 2012.

The Haslams along with executive vice president JW Johnson, general manager John Dorsey and assistant GM Eliot Wolf met with the team around 2 p.m.to announce the changes internally.

Jackson is the six straight Cleveland coach to be fired following the team's second game against Pittsburgh.
