NFL news: Cleveland Browns fire head coach Hue Jackson after another bad start to season

The Cleveland Browns have fired head coach Hue Jackson after a miserable spell at the helm that resulted in just three wins in forty games.

The Browns also fired offensive coordinator Todd Haley after a three-game losing run saw them slip to 2-5-1 after a promising start to the season that saw them matching most of their opponents.

Jackson’s first season yielded just a single win at 1-15, but they were even worse last year and he was lucky to keep his job after a woeful winless 0-16 campaign, taking his overall record to 3-36-1.

Jackson’s record is the worst head coaching record for one team in NFL history with a minimum of 40 games in charge – and the owners felt it was time for a change.

"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, and 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."

Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will take charge on an interim basis as Cleveland look to get the best out of No.1 overall draft pick Baker Mayfield, who has shown glimpses of promise and could be a star of the future.

The Browns have been consistent strugglers in the NFL over the last few years, and things get no easier for them as they play the high-flying Kansas City Chiefs next.
