Browns head coach Hue Jackson relieved of duties

Jackson is the fourth coach Haslam has fired since 2012 (including Pat Shurmur, the coach when he took over).

The Browns became only the second side to go through a 16-game National Football League season without winning last year, having gone 1-15 in Jackson's first season in charge the year before.

Jackson inherited a spotty roster, but a win rate of.088 across 40 games suggests he was far more suited to his former role - offensive aide - than heading a team. He has led searches that led to the hiring of Chudzinski, Pettine and Haslam.

The Browns have 2018 NFL Draft pick Baker Mayfield at quarterback.

Beathard inherited a head coach in Dan Henning whom he doubted would win and fired him two years later after Henning proved him right. Williams will be the fifth coach, the next hire the sixth.

Dorsey, dating to when he got the job, should have had several candidates in mind to run the Browns. Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will serve as the team's interim head coach. It will be interesting to see if he puts that job in Dorsey's hands. But as the year went on, and losing continued, the two seemed to have underlying contempt.

But Dorsey needed the Haslams to come to that conclusion on their own. Hours out from the firing of Jackson by the Browns, the question remains: who will be the coaching staff in Cleveland by the time the day is through? Among NFL coaches, only Bill Belichick with the Patriots has a longer tenure. Now the Browns occupy the bottom of the AFC North division with a 2-5-1 record.
