Cleveland Browns fire Hue Jackson

An Ohio columnist is calling for the Cleveland Browns to fire head coach Hue Jackson following the team's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend. Jackson, who went 3-36-1 in two-plus seasons, was dismissed on Monday by general manager John Dorsey, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.

Like so many other teams, they're likely to seek an offensive-minded coach to work alongside Baker Mayfield, much like the way the Rams did with McVay and Goff.

In a freakish and coincidental twist, the past five Browns⁠' head coaches - Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini, Pat Shurmur, Rob Chudzinski and Mike Pettine - were all fired after the second Steelers game of that season.

Jackson, 53, went 8-8 in his sole season in charge of the Oakland Raiders in 2011, making his overall National Football League record 11-44-1.

He remained in Arizona under Bruce Arians as both the running backs and quarterbacks coach.

Jackson was hired in 2016 by the Haslams, whose six years ownership have been marked by almost constant change and bad football. And even though this is first year as the signal-caller, it sounds like the No. 1 overall pick wasn't all that fond of Jackson, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. I said wanted to help, that's it. The only thing that is going on is that we need to get better.

Jackson's firing comes one day after the Cleveland Cavaliers fired coach Tyronn Lue, who led the team to an National Basketball Association title in 2016 but was struggling in his first season without star LeBron James.
