On Monday, the Cleveland Browns announced that they have fired head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley after losing their third consecutive game and dropping to 2-5-1 for the season. What does this mean for the Browns? What does this mean for Mayfield?
The team announced that defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will be the interim head coach. Also, running backs coach Freddie Kitchens was promoted to offensive coordinator.
Therefore, despite doubling their win total from their last two seasons. The Browns decided to part ways with Jackson, who was 1-32 in his first two seasons.
Also, there were rumors that general manager John Dorsey, who was hired late last season. Wanted to bring in his own coach to lift the team out of its current state.
“We greatly appreciate Hue’s commitment to the Cleveland Browns organization over the last two and a half years.” Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam said in a statement. “We understand how critical this time period is in the development of our football team. Individually and collectively. Also believed it was in the organization’s best interest to make the move at this time, in order to maximize our opportunities the rest of this season. We certainly only wish Hue, Michelle, and his family the best moving forward.”

“I knew that was coming,” Riley said. “No, not right now. You sit here and answer these questions, and I always want to be truthful. The truth is for me is I love Oklahoma. I love coaching here. Love college football. And I certainly don’t have that itch right now. Don’t know that I ever will.”
“But I’m never going to be a guy that stands up here and say no way. No how. With any of these things never happening. I don’t know that. But I know right now I could care less about the NFL.”
In conclusion, the Browns will not make the playoffs. That’s it for Browns news.
