Cleveland Browns Fire Head Coach Hue Jackson

The Cleveland Browns may have finally found their quarterback, but they’re still looking for their coach.

After two and a half seasons as head coach, the Browns have fired Hue Jackson.


Jackson coaches 40 games for the team, winning a mere 3 of them.

The move comes Monday after a 33-18 loss to the Steelers, a loss that moved Jackson into the history books as statistically the second worst coach in NFL history (min 40 games coached) despite Jackson having the best season in his career – which then again isn’t saying much.

According to ProFootballTalk, the only coach who was worse was Bert Bell, who led the Eagles to a record of 10-46-2 (.179) from 1936 to 1941. And Bell couldn’t be fired because he was also the owner of the Eagles.

Jackson will still be paid by the team for the remainder of this season as well as the next per his contract.

The Browns’ firing of Jackson ironically comes one day after the Cavaliers fired the coach of their own in Tyrone Lue.
