  • Final Thoughts On ‘Hue Hill,’ a frustrated Myles Garrett and an incredible misuse of turnovers

For some fans today's firing of Hue Jackson couldn't come soon enough. Jackson, who went 3-36-1 in two-plus seasons, was dismissed on Monday by general manager John Dorsey with the backing of owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam.

If you follow the Cleveland Indians on twitter, you know their social media guru is at the ready with a good quip.

And that summarizes the curious relationship between the pink-slip-happy Haslams and former Brown coach Hue Jackson, who survived much longer than he should have in a job he was destined to lose.

It took the Cleveland Browns 635 days to finally win a game again but only 39 days since then to sack head coach Hue Jackson.

"This is not a throwing in of the towel", the Browns' owner said Monday afternoon.

Bouffier, noting that his party fared better in the Hesse vote than it now does in polls nationally, seems keen to stay in power. A three-way coalition with the Greens and the pro-business Free Democrats was already on the cards before bedtime Sunday night.

The Browns started this season 2-2-1, but have lost three straight and struggled badly in a 33-18 loss in Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Jackson was hired in 2016 by the Haslams, whose six years ownership have been marked by almost constant change and bad football. I said wanted to help, that's it. The only thing that is going on is that we need to get better.

After losing two key coaches on offense this past offseason - Greg Olson and Matt LaFleur - the Los Angeles Rams could have another coach of interest to the Cleveland Browns. Williams will remain the Browns defensive coordinator. First came news of the inevitable, that Jackson had been fired. "We need to coach better, we need to play better".

ESPN first reported the move.
