Jackson was the team’s fifth head coach since 2010.

The team decided to cut ties with the coach after a lackluster start to the season.

Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, a 27-year coaching veteran, will serve as the team’s interim head coach.

The Browns are currently 2-5-1 and had been struggling with Jackson at the helm.

The 53-year-old had one season of head coaching experience before coming to Cleveland.

His best record to date was back in 2011 when he led the Raiders to an 8-8 record.

Even though he is off the team, he is not off the payroll.

A horrific stat from the archives:

The Brownies fell to the Steelers this past Sunday 33-18 and will have another challenge against the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 4.
