Cleveland Browns fire head coach Hue Jackson

Cleveland Browns fire head coach Hue Jackson

Head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley were both fired by the Browns on Monday, leading to speculation that Riley could be a candidate to fill Jackson's shoes.

His firing comes a day after a 33-18 defeat by Pittsburgh, and makes Jackson the sixth straight Browns head coach to be fired after the team's second game of the season against the Steelers.

The Browns are 2-5-1 this season and 3-36-1 overall under Jackson.

In a freaky 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.

For now, Williams is in charge as the Browns prepare to face the Kansas City Chiefs (7-1) on Sunday.

Jimmy Haslam and Dorsey are scheduled to meet the media later Monday to discuss the shakeup. Kitchens joined the Browns when Haley was hired earlier this year. Cleveland went 1-15 that year.

Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley indicated he has no interest in the Cleveland Browns' vacant head coaching job.

Following Sunday's game, Jackson downplayed any dispute with his offensive co-ordinator. But today it's this big thing because sure, everyone is going to look and say what's going on. We're pretty sure Wylie Coyote thinks Halloween is for yoga lovers and devil worshippers (not mutually exclusive), but something tells us even he would have a good chortle over this one.

ESPN first reported the move.
